New Warre Hive – Bars oriented the "wrong" way

I set up my Warre hive at the end of March with the bar ends oriented towards the front and back of the hive. The bees are drawing comb starting on the right-most bar. If the bars were oriented conventionally I believe they would have started on the back most bar and worked their way towards the entrance.

It seems like my bees are happy but I wonder if I should turn the boxes 90 degrees to return them to a "proper" orientation. Does it matter all that much?

Thanks in advance for any help!
