Problem: Cura 4.12.1 doesn't have a consistent direction to draw the brim?

Cura doesn't always draw the brim from outside to inside (adjacent to the outer wall), is this a bug? e.g. the object on the bottom left had the brim drawn from outside to inside (good!) but the object at the top right had the brim drawn from the inside to the outside (not good!):

The problem with that in this case is that the brim is too complicated if it is drawn from the inside out so the print will always fail. Is there a way to consistently force the brim to be drawn in one direction, i.e. from the outside to inside?

    can't explain why, but setting surface mode to 'both' seems to solve the problem.

    Thanks, that didn't work for me. I re-opened that attached file and did nothing other than change that setting and click slice...and three of the objects still had their brim printed in the wrong order (inside to outside). I feel like this should probably be considered to be a bug, I cannot think of a print I have ever done that I would prefer the brim to be printer in that order.
