There is a purpose to having gear tilt, it is a mechanism that allows retraction into the wheel well. It’s not just there for no reason, so the aircraft manufacturer just designs it in a way that the aircraft needs, which in some cases may not be the same direction as another plane

I think he is talking about why the direction of the gear tilt is opposite of each other
