Sorry folks, this is not really a homebrew question, but I thought you might be able to help me.
I bought a 30dB power attenuator on ebay. This one has the label with the power rating attached to the side with the N-Male connector. But the datasheet here:
shows a picture with the label above an N-Female connector.

Electrically it probably is very symmetrical. But power wise it is not. The small included datasheet warns not to use it reversed.

Do they come in both flavors? Or might it be mislabeled?
