Note that this command uses AGL (very similar to ASL) positions, so if you want to use the moored or seabed mine, you'll have to find the appropriate negative z value that is underwater and convert that to ASL. Also note that you can't adjust the positions of sea mines after they've been created. The command is either ignored or not propagated across the network to clients.
