Not sure if an example is needed, but here is one.

I'm curious as to how the joint connected to the monitor itself "remembers" the last position the monitor was moved to. In my naiveté, I imagine the rotation being enabled by grease, so how is it that the monitor does not always rotate back towards the direction of gravity's pull?

All the pivot joints are “stiff” due to being tightened sufficiently with friction so once in place they don’t move - except for flexing of the mechanism.
