Not sure why the they did that i am guessing the reason is that either it does not matter or every car is unique. i would just swap the old one onto the new one just to be safe.
I will do a little research to find the real reason

it has more than one motor mount there is one in front of vehicle lower part by radiator its a bracket that holds the motor mount attached to frame almost in the middle of motor and transmission

I found a great 4 piece set for my 2004 Neon included 3 motor mounts and
1 automatic transmission mount for $115. Look at yogiautoparts.com - link for
my part was at http://dodge-car-parts.yogiautoparts.com/20032005_neon_20_engine_automatic_transmission_motor_mount_4x_set_68150.html
you need to get a jack, support motor with it, undo motor mount nut/ bolt, raise engine to get clearance, replace motor mount with new one, lower motor back down, replace nut/bolt, you are done. fairly simply, hardest part is working if tight space, easier access from under the car, so support car on ramps or jack stands to help if you can.
there is a motor mount that attaches frum the passenger side wheel to the tming cover. this is the mount that usually goes bad. you have to remove the wheel to see the torx bolt at the wheel well. than there are bolts on the other side of the wheel well. after you get those the ones at the motor have to be removed. you will have to place a jack under the oil pan use a piece of wood with the jack. you also have to take the top mount of first. thats pretty easy to replace.
IT SOUNDS LIKE THE MAIN MOUNT IN FRAME ON PASS SIDE IS BROKEN..I HAVE NEVER SEEN ONE BROKEN BEFORE OR REPLACED ONE,BUT IT WOULD A FAIR JOB TO REPLACE..ALSO THE BOLT THAT GOES THRU FROM FENDERWELL MAY BE BROKEN..CAUSING YOUR PROBLEM..THERE IS A SMALL PLASTIC PLUG IN FENDER WELL..ABOUT AN INCH OR SO IN DIAMETER..THERE IS A TORX BOLT(T55)IN BEHIND PLUG..CHECK AND SEE IF IT'S NOT BROKEN..TRY TIGHTENING OR LOOSENING IT..IT MAY BE BROKEN OFF IN PLATE THAT IS BOLTED TO ENGINE..LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU FIND
