Torque spec of the bolt to the nut or visa/vs shoud not make any difference .
The drag /friction on the bolt shaft is nil from the bearing surfaces..
Look around and see how many bolt heads are facing down in any piece of machinery... gravity is not the factor of bolt lossening.
I would think the original position of the idler bolt is for manufacturing sequence ease only.....
