Can someone explain why output atoms randomly appear as input in different places?

So, I make a reactor to break down N2 and O2 into N and O

Then my next reactor takes N and O and makes them into a complex N O combination(For the level No Thanks Necessary)

This shouldn't be hard, but the problem is the input for the reactor starting with N and O appears in 2 different spots, even though I specify the output on the last reactor in only 1 spot.

Maybe I'll try a rough picture
_____________
|__|__|__|__|
|__|_N|__|__|
|__|__|__|__|
|__|__|__|__|

This is what is says will be the input to the reactor

_____________
|__|__|__|__|
|__|_N|_N|__|
|__|__|__|__|
|__|__|__|__|

This is what actually happens, with a seemingly random chance for it to be either square. Is this normal? It happens at every level, but I don't remember it being explained

The position of the outputs in the first reactor influences the position of the inputs in the second.

Yeah that's what I'm saying. The output on the first reactor looks like the first picture I posted. What's actually coming in on the input is the second picture.

*NOPE! I'm a giant idiot* I was dropping an N=N and -bonding it there on the output. Duhhh*

Don't feel an idiot, we've all made worse mistakes.
Now you've just learned to watch what really happens in a reactor and blaming yourself first instead of the game
