This depends, though I'm not sure what exactly it is it depends on.
ROM firmware version, maybe?  Machine type?

Some systems default sd0 to ID 3 as you say (with sd1 at ID 1, sd2 at
ID 2, and sd3 at ID 0); others have sd numbers equaling SCSI ID numbers
for 0-4 by default.  There may be other mappings, but those are the
only ones I recall seeing personally.  I never learnt what led to their
swapping 0 and 3 on some systems....
