This might sound nit picky, but stiff/straight are not the same as RDLs. RDLs are ridden down the legs while sticking the arse back. An RDL is basically hips moving back and forward, riding the weight down the legs. The RDL stops when the lower back wants to break, and the knees are allowed to break naturally. Ending point is usually somewhere slightly below the knee.

A Stiff leg deadlift on the other hand can go all the way to the floor, as seen in Tann's video. The back can round and the hips stay high. If the knees are bent they generally stay in the same position. The straight leg deadlift is another variation with locked legs.
