The slot you see the center of the strut top sits in is the actual castor slot, turning the plates 120 degrees would mean turning caster adjustment into camber and camber adjustment into castor, that wasn't how the plates were designed.

The logos aren't supposed to be read from standing in front of the car, but rather from the sides of the cars.
