I agree with you on that, but you're just flipping the same guitar upsidedown- nothing CAN change.
Here's the back of a Super 2:
When you install a pickup you normally put it in with the wire end "down"- towards the control routing- righty or lefty. When you cut one of the coils, it has to be one or the other. On your righty, lets say it cuts the coil closest to the neck.
If I install the same pickup in my lefty, wire end down, that same coil on my guitar is now going to be the one closest to the bridge- the pickup is in the same orientation as your righty, but the neck and the bridge are now facing in the opposite directions. The guitar has "rotated east and west", but the pickup is still oriented "north and south" the same as your righty. Unless- I install it upside down- then the cut coil will be in the same place as the cut coil on your righty.
There are some pickups made for lefty guitars, but it usually has to do with a skew across the length of the pickup if there is something different on the bass strings and the treble strings (pole height for example). TLike most pickups however, the Super 2 is only made "righty". Cutting one coil would be the only thing that would make a lefty-righty difference.
But back to your example- when you flipped your righty over to be a lefty- the Super 2 is now oriented "upsidedown"- the wire is coming out the "top".
