Place a label and try to rotate it counter-clockwise. It is not possible since the rotation angle does not accept negative values. Check now the data definition description where the expected input should be a double [-180.0, 180.0].

The expected input should be in the range of [-180.0, 180.0] and not [0.0, 360.0] or if it is desired to place labels upside-down then you could extend the range to [-360.0, 360.0].

if you want to show upside down labels you must use the proper option in labelling > rendering, isn't this what you are looking for?

I think it's rather about text added to print composer (such as title, source...) than labelling.
The "Rotation" spinbox doesn't allow to write negative value. You only can write [0.0, 360.0] values.
But "data defined override" option seems to allow any value although its description says that only [-180.0, 180.0] values are allowed.
There is a need of homogenization...

And testing further, it appears that this rotation "incoherence" happens also with any item in the print composer (map, shape, legend...), in brief with all rotation spinbox, except for map rotation where "data defind override" function seems to not work (I'll fill a ticket about).
