Answer:
Although the symbol may look like a complete 180 degree rotation, we
do not take it that literally. We are saying that the movement is
rotating "somewhere within that plane". If you use one eighth of that
rotation area, that is OK!

Here are some pages to visit regarding rotation symbols:

For daily use, it is not necessary to become so detailed, showing
one-eighth of a rotation.

Technically we can write such details, but we would have to do the
"eighth of a rotation symbol" by hand.

In SignWriter 4.3 we do not have any other choices for typing other
than 4 arcs to a circle:
