Tesla Solar Panel Design Doesn't Make Sense

I have an order for 9.18kw system from tesla and I live in socal and have partially flat roof and partially pitched. According to the permit documents the flat roof array can handle 0 to 15 degrees. I don't understand why on the flat roof the panels are being angled only degrees and not 15 degrees? Also why is the azimuth for MP3 270 and not 180? Are they planning to angle them west instead of south? Why would they design it this way?
