David Swift (rococo) added a comment to D8445: Provide option to "preserve first edge" in mirror modifier.

However the downside has then been that mirroring & using deform modifiers have always been difficult because of the issue described here.

David Swift (rococo) abandoned D8445: Provide option to "preserve first edge" in mirror modifier.

Would it be fair to say at this point that Geometry Nodes provide the generalized solution to this kind of problem and the old way of doing instancing will slowly go away? If so this "fix" would therefore be unnecessary.

Rebased these changes to master so I believe this should be up to date now.

No worries! Appreciate the attention to detail and a chance to practice the workflow. The next one will be better!

David Swift (rococo) added a comment to T77575: collection instance rotates 90 degrees automatically when being instantiated by another object with mirror modifier.

I created a potential fix for this some time ago but it never felt like the "right" solution. As far as I know this is (one of?) the only features in Blender that cares about vertex order. There aren't tools for viewing or reordering face vertices and based on the little bit of research I've done it seems that going down that path is discouraged (which I think I agree with).

If the option leads to a more consistent results, why is not enabled by default and why is this even an option?

Apologies, still learning how to use arc properly and accidentally pulled in a change to object_dupli.c. Let me see if I can undo that.

I encountered this same problem today and did a little investigation. It appears this is a side-effect of how face instancing works:
