rigging inside the boom

I took a closer look at the rigging in the boom today. I noticed that the reefing line runs from the block at the mast step up into the boom, but then runs under the sheave instead of over it (like the rest of the lines do). Is that right? Seems odd to me. Also, on the other end of the boom, the same line comes out two sheaves over, not in line with where it goes in. Now, I don't know the inner workings of the boom(yet) and reefing lines, maybe it supposed to be that way. Can anyone give me the skinny on this?
