Seagate Physical / Logical Head Maps Reversed?

It seems to me that the PC-3000 ROM utility is mis-designating the logical and physical head maps.

For example, I've got a ST1000DL002 drive where the actual physical head map is 01 03 05 (all top side heads). The physical head map in the utility shows the head map as 00 01 02, but the logical actually does show it as 01 03 05 as you can see here:

Has anyone figured out if they just reversed the names here, or am I missing something about F3 architecture and head maps?
