Since it goes in at somewhat of an angle it seems if the flats are horizontal it provides a little more clearance.

Seems to slide into the front slide bore a bit better horizontal.I've never noticed a difference; I just pop it in, rack the slide and done. Are you suggesting it works better with the flats horizontal?
I'd give right arm to be ambidextrous
I do the same with the screw slot on electric wall outlet covers. It’s an OCD thing…On my P365XL's, I have the flat portions vertical...

Gotcha. That actually makes a lot of sense. Thank you for that tidbit!Those are wrench flats for assembly at the factory. There's a small slot at the opposite end. If you look closely you'll see that that piece screws into the rod. They need a way to hold it when it gets tightened. It has nothing to do with how the rod is installed in the gun.
