It may be that. I really couldn't work out in my head which direction

In practise I find I clearly prefer mouse up = clockwise, which is the
relation that you just called unintuitive (and I think I would agree
with you -- there's no very good reason to suppose that preference in
mouse movement would be the same as preference in how a vertical
selection responds to rotary control, but it's interesting to find
they actually do differ). My preference might be just familiarity, or
it might be my vision in the absence of any other cue aligning the
movement of the mouse with that of the left edge of the knob.
