The body would be tight and muscles somewhat strained after deadlift. I suggest doing some warmdowns before you go home. For deadlift, I like hanging off a chinup bar and just lightly swing my legs and rotate my hips, using gravity to pull everything back into normal places.

Sheiko throws them in every so often, and they almost feel like a different lift. My normal deadlift must be much more leg-driven than I realised.

Sheiko explains it very clearly in his book, but it's in Russian.

You want to set up in the exact same position you would be at if you were to lift the bar from the floor. There is often a more efficient position to do in a rack pull, which your body may drift into, and one you wouldn't be in if you were to do a full lift. You don't want to be in that position and it will indeed feel like a different lift.

I'd take a lighter weight, deadlift to roughly where the bar should be in your desired rack pull, pause there for a bit then commit that position and feeling to muscle memory, so you can reproduce that in a rack pull.
