Strange to say, a switch can be either top-on or bottom-on. The
visible rocker can be reversed so that the invisible inner workings are
moving as you prefer. I puzzled over that question for some time until
I took two switches apart. Their internals are identical, but the
rockers can be ( and were) installed in either orientation.
My suggestion is that you set them up so that the internal
illumination is on when the switch is on.
