Camshaft timing question

After inspecting my scavenger pumps trying to figure out oil consumption, I notice my camshaft sprocket bolts are in different positions for each bank. Before I start chasing gremlins and engine timings - is this normal for the bolts to be in different spots or should I absolutely go ahead and check the timing on my engine?

Bank 1 (passenger side):


Bank 2 (driver side):

Not at all unusual.

Thanks! And that's why I double check before spending time and sweat doing something I don't need to do.
