I thought the same and started to take the screws off one of my helicoid 
adapters, as the aperture, distance scale were near the bottom. But the back 
plate is not just attached with screws on mine, it was engaged to the helicoid 
mechanism. I was not willing to take it apart further.

I got lucky with a Yeenon "M42-M42X17.3mm Helicoid tube + M42-NEX Mount" that 
happens to put the scales on top. Infinity focus requires a bit of helicoid 
extension, but not a problem for me.
