Rotating does not give you reverse wound as the windings are still in the same direction.

For reverse wound, you need a pickup where the windings are reversed.

The only thing rotating does is change the physical location of the active pickup if the pickup is a humbucker and you split it.

A humbucker has two single coils that are reverse wound from each other and have the opposite magnetic polarity. So yes, a mirror image. For the Brawer wiring the actual pickup is only flipped to change the location so that south coil is neck side when cut.
