Default Rear Axle Housing Question

As I prepare to remove the rear axle assembly from the car tomorrow, I noticed that the driver side axle housing has a seam facing the rear of the car, while the passenger side housing has a seam facing downward. Is it common for the two housings to have seams oriented differently ??

Also, I notice that the driver side banjo bolts have lock washers under them, and that there is no safety wire in the torque tube bolt heads. It would appear that this axle has been disassembled in the past.
