Is my Rad Fan wired backwards?

I just got done reading the thread with pinout information for the 6 pin radiator fan connector. Here.

What I see on my wiring appears to be different but yet I can’t tell if I need to switch the resistor and fan motor wiring.

The pinout I believe calls for the fan motor to be linked to pins 3 and 4. These currently go to my resistor, not the fan.

Pins 1 and 6 were used for the fan motor when I took the radiator out of the car which again is backwards when reading the post above with the pinouts.

Do I need to swap the resistor to 1 and 6 and put the fans back on 3 and 4?

I unfortunately do not have the motor running so I can’t turn the car on to test results yet.
