Some Nikkor lenses have been designed with the zoom and focus rings in different positions.

There is no rhyme or reason to it. Perhaps one of the engineers pushed the change for just the reason you surmised, but at a point in the design process when the product manager wasn't paying attention to user experience issues. The default exposure metering scale in the viewfinder is also reversed, but at least that's easily changed in CSM F12.

Grrrr.
