 From the manpage:
up and down         seek backward/forward  1 minute
pgup and pgdown     seek backward/forward 10 minutes

I guess I see what you mean. Though, that somehow never bothered my
fingers. :) If you prefer the other way around, though, changing the
behavior is really easy: just edit your ~/.mplayer/input.conf, and
change the signs in this part:

DOWN seek -60
UP seek +60
PGUP seek 600
PGDWN seek -600

Out of curiosity, does anybody know why the UP seek has a plus sign
and the PGUP seek doesn't? There is no difference, is there?

I've never had that happen. It actually seeks twice, once when you press
the key down, and once again when you release it? You might want to fill
out a formal bugreport (DOCS/bugreports.html) on that one.
