When reusing tappets in a rebuild, is it important that the rollers turn in the same direction as they originally did?

When reusing something ( pistons, valves, headbolts, tappets, ect. ) in a build I always index it and put it back as it came out but if your rollers are in good shape you will be ok, imo, Tim
