Yes, back before Apple encouraged us to reverse the behavior to make 
Macs act more like iPhones. And I think on Windows and Linux it still 
acts as before.

Imagine a scrolling field with its scroll set to zero. Click underneath 
the thumb, or if you're not on Mac, click the lower down arrow. The 
field scrolls one increment (page or line) and now its scroll is no 
longer zero, it has incremented by one lineheight or pageheight.

Click the top arrow, or click above the thumb, and the field scroll 
decrements back to zero.

When Apple decided to make us use fields like mobile apps do, the 
behavior reversed. I never did get used to that so I've kept my Mac 
scrollers the old way.
