Does clutch friction plate orientation matter?

Gunna put a slipper in my '06 450 this Friday, and just wondering if the orientation of the plates makes a difference? Last time I took the clutch out (to replace the shift stopper) I noticed that the fiber plates had a cutout or keyway on one of the ends. Are these supposed to all line up, or be offset, or does it not matter at all?? Thanks

update, just pulled the clutch out tonight, and it's not a cutout in the plates, but rather some black paint that is sprayed on only one "finger" of each friction plate, am I supposed to line up all the black fingers, or does it not matter?
