The retainer looks like glass door retainer molding. NKCA stands for National Kitchen Cabinet Association. It's a pay to play association, the AARP of the cabinet industry. Some projects require cabinets with a NKCA certification.

Eastern South Dakota is very pretty with hills, rivers, and trees.

I think the reversibility was only for construction, not for the owner to change later.

If the panels used for raised doors or flat doors are the same, keeping inventory on hand is easier. The panels for both kinds of doors come from the same stack so they are never "out" of raised panels while having too many flat panels on hand. They just flip the panel over to make the requested door style.

According to the contractor who installed the cabinets in our home back in 1973, the panels were intended to be reversible. He spent quite some time demonstrating the proper procedure for reversing the panels. My mother just chose to keep the raised panel side displayed . . . . there was some consideration at one time of installing a few frosted glass panels in a few of the cabinets.
