TDI block drain plug washer orientation

Can't find the info on this in the manuals so I thought I'd ask here.

On a 300 TDI the block located coolant drain plug has a profiled copper crush washer. Which way should the washer be oriented in relation to the bolt? Or does it matter?

Two ways washer could be installed illustrated below.

I don't think it matters as long as you get the proper Torque on it.

The block plug on my '01 engine is on the manifold side of the block and is like a taper threaded, square headed NPT pipe plug.
