You don't understand. It is accounted for if you are considering the rear of the sub to be on the inside of the box, however, when magnet is mounted on the outside of the box, the subwoofer now takes up negative space (flat piston subs excluded) due to the fact that the cone is now a dome. A dome that has air space. Not alot granted, but something to be considered (especially with a deep inverted dustcap sub). It can be as much as... .05 cu. ft. (on a 12" sub) like I stated. So, you're taking out the space consumed by the sub & you're adding the space of the new dome over the mounting hole & you get about .15 ish cu. ft. extra space.
What is normal anyway???

yes, inverting a sub will add very little to the internal volume of a box. in most cases, anywhere from 0.06-0.09. not alot, but can make a small difference, usually not audiable though.
Whatever you do, DO NOT let the white smoke leak out of the wires.....

I like facing the subwoofers towards my neighbors. And also I enjoy a 50% stuffing..I use stovetop.
