Satellite contracts. Did something change in 1.3?

Question

Looking at 2 satellite contracts. One is for an equatorial satellite, the other at a 13 deg. inclination. Both orbit direction indicators show eastwards orbit BUT one of them have the descending node where the ascending node should have been. Did something change with 1.3 so that only the AN/DN markers will tell the actual direction, with the indicator always going east, even for a westwards orbit? That would make for loads of fun with the zero inclination contract... Anyone have some insight?

More specifically: An and Dn on satellite orbits are calculated relative to the ship that currently has focus. And that has always been true. If you switch focus to a different ship, the An and Dn values on the satellite orbits will change, and they will be in different places.
