Yes, I agree it is probably due to the parts themselves being identical / interchangeable. If they wanted to key things to distinguish left vs. right, they'd need to sell different parts for left and right sensors, and left and right cables, etc. And yes, they'd surely make us pay for the extra cost that comes with that at the cash register.
