I don't know. My lid had the bung on the side so it works for me. I would try the one in the center first, more symmetrical cuz that's the way I like to be. Also if there is a slight domed effect to the top, the center bung might help remove more of the moisture so there will be less accumulation of condensate at the end of the cook. Purely conjecture here.
With the side bung, I do keep the exhaust opposite where the open valve is.
