While that's the way that I build them, I don't think that statement is necessarily true.

Lots of wheels have been built with the left and right hub flanges the same rather than a mirror image of one another. I suspect that made it easier to insert the spokes into the flanges.
My greatest fear is all of my kids standing around my coffin and talking about "how sensible" dad was.
