I just got my engine block back from the machine shop and the rear soft plug behind the cam has been installed FE style with the cup facing inward. Should I remove it and change it back to the way it comes from the factory or will it hurt anything the way it is now?

I have seen them in like that and caused no problems. As long as it is not in to far and binds the cam up against the retaining plate should be fine

As long as it doesn't leak it is fine. Some cam plugs are made with a reverse taper.
