Wire connection in fuse panel

I have a 1960's split bus fuse panel in my residence. For the branch circuits, the exposed portion of the conductor, rather than being looped around the connection screw adjacent to the fuse (as one would expect to see on a device such as a switch or receptacle), is straight and is beneath the screw on one side. On some of the circuits it is on the right side of the screw (as viewed looking at the screw) and on others it is on the left. This intuitively doesn't sound right, but it appears to be correct because the screw terminals have what looks like kind of a guide (indented resting spot) for the conductor. Does this sound correct?

Yes, it sounds correct.
