Default Raleigh rim transplant, lacing query

I'm doing a straight replacement with cheap Alex x404s (same ERD, same
width) and upon examining the wheels tonight, I noticed something that
may or may not be significant. They're standard 3X front and rear, but
the leading spokes don't go "over over under" like I'm used to. They go
"under under under" the trailing spokes. Should I lace them the former
way when I replace the rims, or is there a reason not to? Using the
original zinc spokes as they're w/o corrosion.

I can supply a picture if this sounds confusing. :-P

we know what you are talking about. Common on lower priced bikes.
Faster/easier to lace them up that way. The last 'under' helps spread
the stress.

Not confusing...take 'em all out and lace 'correctly', would be my
rec...
