Pins give a component or part its electrical properties and define the connection points on the part for incoming and outgoing signals. Many components will have a series of pins that have numerical names and numbers. If you wanted backwards pin numbers to change based on footprint, this will require a live backward link from printed circuit board (PCB) to schematic layout.
