By design MongoDB does not allow intersect queries with geometries having coordinates out of the bounding box -180,-90,180,90.
(See the "Important" section from their doc on geoIntersects: https://docs.mongodb.com/manual/reference/operator/query/geoIntersects/)
In GeoServer, this becomes problematic in multiple scenarios, where the Envelope becomes "out of bounds".
GeoServer returns the following error from MongoDB: "longitude/latitude is out of bounds"
Other Store kinds do not mind about an "out of bounds" Envelopes.
