Axes in Plot3D and ListPlot3D

Plot3D[Sin[x + y^2],{x,-3,3},{y,-3,3},AxesLabel->{"x","y","z"}]

gives a plot that I thought I could duplicate by creating a table

z = Table[Sin[x + y^2],{x,-3,3,1/4},{y,-3,3,1/4}];

and then using ListPlot3D:

ListPlot3D[z,AxesLabel->{"x","y","z"},MeshRange->{{-3,3},{-3,3}}] .

That gives a different view of the same surface, with the wrong labels
on the axes. To duplicate the Plot3D result I must transpose the array:


That seems unreasonable. What have I missed?
Is it mentioned somewhere in the documentation?
