Q: Does moisture settle to the bottom of a piece of lumber when the lumber is drying? If so, would it pay to flip the lumber upside down after a few weeks?

A: Gravity plays no important role in drying of lumber; wood is not that porous. So, the top side of lumber is not drier than the bottom, unless the humidity is lower or temperature or velocity is higher on the top than on the bottom.
