    shouldn't the + and - be reversed?

    No,

    Batteries work exactly the same in the Southern hemisphere as Northern hemisphere ;)

    It is also a myth that water twirls the opposite way around when you empty the bath.

    No. The polarity on the battery symbol is never reversed. The long dash represents the + while the short dash represents the -.

    If you wish to reverse the polarity then turn the entire symbol and signage upside down.
