When setting up the game, the six top/bottom sectors have a blue stripe on the top/bottom, so there is only one way each can be put in any given place -- three will be upside down, assuming asymmetric card backs. Can the two side sectors be placed in both directions (so there are 8 ways to place them instead of 2)?

I'll need to check to be sure, but I think top and bottom are interchangeable, as are right and left, and the 4 corners.
So I'm not sure what you're asking.


Edit: I was misremembering. You are correct.

Is there a significant reason that the 8 side cards aren't completely interchangeable? Why the blue top and bottom at all? If we could place those 8 cards anywhere randomly, up or down, there would be 80640 possible layouts (as opposed to the mere 1448 that are possible now).

It was mainly to do with the shape of the cards. If you try interchanging them you'll see the hexes don't line up. Believe me I wanted total interchanging!
