Dammit. That removes all doubt as to who screwed this up.

Canyon assembles and roadtests all their bikes before shipping; the stem came in place and the lettering reads properly as installed. The bar was_not connected, and *that* is where some imbecile (one guess) managed to get it backwards. I guess it's a testament to how cleanly they ran the lines, because (this being my first bike with hydraulic brakes) I was paying the most attention to trying to arrange it so the brake lines "seemed" most smoothly-run.
