Back Buttons Kite CS lite

Ok, so apologies if this has been asked already and again sorry for being a bit dim with this.
On the Kite CS lite board, does it matter which colour wire I use for the back buttons, using the plug supplied in the kit?

As long as black is gnd (which can be confirmed by following the wire to the connector, which will have a labelled telling you the wire function) then order does not matter

Thanks, I was being an idiot. I’ve spotted the board even labels the L2R2 and ground.

Sorry to invade this topic, but I've seen build videos where users of only 2 back buttons tend to use the R2 and L2 wires to solder onto L1 and R1 back button sockets - why is this?

Makes wiring a little simpler (less wires going to/from places)
