Is the computer mouse truly ambidextrous?

Most mice are designed in a way that they are symmetrical from the vertical center which allows them to be ambidextrous. The user can go into the settings/preferences in the computer and pick the primary button and voila, things are sorted!

But then I looked at the mice which belong to a higher price and feature ranges and realized that they aren't designed like that.

Most of the gaming mice have DPI scaling, forward/backward buttons and other dedicated buttons. These buttons are placed on the mouse in such a way that a left-handed user won't be able to use them (at least not with the same ease)

So, I was wondering if it's the mouse manufacturers who are cutting corners or is it that the basic design of the mouse is flawed?
