Yeah, if you just get the shelf with the personality module already in
you automatically assume that the outside one is the one to use :)

They should - the outermost one is the activity light (green) and the
innermost one (orange) is the fault light. Mind, they're just jumpered
off the drive itself so it's possible the drive in the carrier's been
replaced and the connector not refitted.
