You're absolutely right.
The room is wired correctly - I misidentifed the plug types.
The wire molding is darkish gray and runs along the wall beneath
the table surfaces - so there isn't a lot of light or contrast.
Inspected up close with a flashlight the receptacles are clearly
5-20R. Oddly, even knowing this, looking at them with normal room
light from 8 feet out they still look like 5-15Rs to me.
Guess I need new eyes too.
