Bearing Orientation per X and Z Axis?

When assembling the bearing parts for the X and Z axis, is the orientation of bearings important?

I expect one of three possibilities(if I'm not missing any):

  1. It isn't.
  2. It is, and each axis should be set up a particular way.
  3. It isn't, except all bearings should be aligned consistently.

I'm not including the Y axis as I have seen specific instructions on it.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

I would say, with linear ball bearings... Follow the same rule.

Following the same rule than the Y (at least for the X) will help the weight to be correctly spread on the smooth rods....
