Actually, you and your coworkers may both be right, since FCP's behavior on this is controlled by its sequence settings.

However, the default settings should be that FCP does a stereo downmix of all tracks in the sequence and lays that to track 1 and 2, which means you'll have to pan the tracks in your sequence to get them on the right tracks on tape.

But if you have set the audio routing for the sequence to "discrete channels", in the last tab of sequence settings (command + 0), then it should work like you decribed in your post. However, if I remember correctly, the pan controls should be disabled in this case, so if you can operate the pan controls, the sequence probably is in downmix mode.

One thing: are you setting pan before or after laying the audio to the sequence? If the sequence settings seem correct, make sure you double-click on the clip in the sequence or use the mixer to set pan (or confirm that pan is disabled), and not open the parent clip in you bin.

Hope that ansvered your question, but be sure to check what is actually going to tape, there might be something I missed here.
