I think it's to enhance snap performance.
I may be wrong, since I don't understand why this feature would be carried to the stab. Would you need a better snap with the stab? I don't think so!

Swap # 1 and #3, the two farthest apart.

Oh, don't forget there's more to it than that. You also have to swap the motor wires.
