Default Sidewheel engines

Novice question here: on sidewheelers, were engines always placed forward of the wheels? I'm guessing yes - it wouldn't make much sense to have to run a steam line further than necessary.

This brings up another question then ... for sidewheelers where the wheels are close to halfway along the hull rather than further aft, was the machinery difficult to balance out with hog chains, etc?
