Switching North-South and East-West for the last 2 rounds of a Pairs competition

This is a slightly different query to Barry Rogoff's question at 

https://bridgewinners.com/article/view/is-playing-the-same-boards-in-a-pairs-event-important/

 

In Major Pairs Competitions in Ireland, the directors usually switch North-South and East-West orientation for the last 2 rounds in each session. This means that all North-Souths play the same hands, but usually play four of the hands in a different direction to the other North-Souths. This introduces a further random element into the competition. Is anyone aware of a statistical or other reason for this change of orientation?
