Default Directionality of V-Cap TFTF?

I just found a set of V-Caps in a "parts only" amp I received in trade. Is there a preferred orientation (directionality) when using them to bypass power supply electrolytics?

when you are holding the cap in your hands, looking at the label, and the words are correctly laid out in front of you (a lead out the left and a lead out the right), the left lead is the outer foil, or the positive (+) terminal connection.
