Starting with the D4 and D800 Nikon reversed the default direction on the exposure scale in the viewfinder. I don't think your meter is reading backwards. Look carefully and I think you will find the plus and minus signs are on the opposite ends of the scale from where you expect them to be.

You can reverse the exposure scale display by changing CSM f12 (p. 319 in the English manual).
