I suspect that was deliberate, to protect the hydraulic brakes from being moved by an impact especially considering one wheel was shipped detached. I wondered why the shifting action felt weird. Mea culpa.
It looks like the brake levers are upside down as well. The stem and bar was installed upside down. You can flip the stem, but flip only the stem.
