This is weird.. interesting.. but why was/would the film be loaded into film cassette backwards?
IF the OP had gotten all his photos correctly... wouldn't they be marked 24 down to 1... then x/0.... Don't the images usually run 1-24?
How much past 24 was he able to shoot?... being that 24 was his X was his last shot?...
Some electronic auto wind cameras per load/wind the entire roll onto the take up spool, and then as shot, the film is wound back into the cassette, this way if the back is opened by mistake, most of the images are safely inside the film cassette and not ruined. I don't know about this camera but maybe that's a feature of this camera?
