Control arm bushing upside down?

Car is 2001 Olds Silhouette 3.4 van-
Just finished installing front, lower control arm bushing. The bushing ( Moog-K6712) is the one in front with the vertical, torx head bolt- the bushing is encased in metal with a flange on one side-after installing the passengers side, I noticed that the flange is on the bottom of the arm on the drivers side where as I put the flange on the top of the arm on the passenger side-
Will this affect the function of bushing in any way?
I can’t see how it would as the rubber is equidistant either way-
Please let me know if I screwed the pooch with this reverse flange side installation.
Thank you in advance-
