Tuners are designed, as far as I am aware to be installed so that the post is on the fingerboard side of the wormgear, this is so that the moment produced by the pull of the string pushes the gear towards the worm. If installed the other way around the string pull will pull the gear away from the worm causing slop ( how much will depend on the quality of the tuner) and tuning hassles.

Some types of tuners can be dis-assembled and the worm installed the other way I've done this myself on several occasions.
