Around here you need to maintain 6" above soils and 1" above concrete with all wood members. Sunken posts are not done anymore. You just trim out some nice casings around the footing. If you need large 20"ers than switch over to permacolumns on a pad or build dummy columns around it. Sunken may be more sway resistant, but when the post collapses sway resistance wont matter.
