Initial Medium Supers Set Up for New Nucs

At the advise of a longtime beekeeper, we have set up our all medium (we have no deeps) hives in the following order (from ground up):
Bottom board
1 med. with empty frames
1 med. w/ the 5 nuc frames and 5 empty frames
Inner cover
1 empty med. super for feeding
Outer cover

Thoughts? I understand that 2 mediums = 1 deep for the colony “housing”. But should we flip the 2 lower boxes so that the one with empty frames is above the more full one or does it not matter as it is acting like one deep?
