The bracket doesn't go between the housing and the axle flange, it goes on inboard of the axle housing flange. As to the recess, I would suspect that it is either to capture the heads of the bolts so they don't spin while tightening the axle retainer nuts, or it goes toward the outside so the caliper centers over the rotor. It should be easy to figure out by just mocking up the parts. When installed properly, the bleeder screw on the caliper should be up so air cannot be trapped in the caliper.

Good luck

Andy
