Default Is this normal?

When I was stripping down my Ludwig Auditorium to treat the shell with mahogany restore a finish I noticed that the bowtie lug wasn't centred (like I assumed it woud be). On the 6 1/2" deep shell, the top hole is 2 1/2" fron the edge and the bottom hole is just 2" from the edge.

Is this normal? I did notice it before when the head was on, but I put it down to being an old stretched reso head.

Can someone enlighten me?
