I think where you have become a little confused is in the curves as you see them. The dyno produces information in a sinusoidal waveform but the wave is reconstructed by the software for ease of viewing. When you look at the force vs displacement curve you see the curve almost as its meant to be. The rebound curve however has been folded back underneath the comp curve in order to best fit our screens. This now appears as an oval but that's far from reality.
When you are viewing other screens eg. comp closing / reb opening, its like the curve has been folded back on itself....for viewing purposes. This is like looking at a set of goal posts on a rugby field. From front on we get the full picture and see the gap between the posts, but from side on we only see the one post making everything appear in line.
