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:
ListPlot3D[Transpose@z,AxesLabel>{"x","y","z"},MeshRange>{{3,3},{3,3}}]
That seems unreasonable. What have I missed? Is it mentioned somewhere in the documentation?
