PNP symbols (selectors) on the MEGA and MICRO

It seems that the PNP symbols on both the Arduino MEGA and MICRO design sketches are backwards?

In all cases I noticed the MOSFET would be directing current in the wrong direction if the symbol would be correct.

Ah so the current to this NCP1117 is actually flowing through the diode into the regulator…

Effectively bypassing the PNP.

Now I get it!
