@Northbeach, there are at least two different MCP versions on the 737NG, one does have different knobs with different haptic feedback (they feel a lot different), the other brand's knobs are not that much different (there is still some difference). The first one is the old Honeywell panel and the latter one the newer Rockwell Collins one.

@OK456, it might depend on the door system installed, on our 737s the door lock switch is a rotary switch which does not have a push action to normally unlock the door. Its position on the center pedestal changes between aircrafts so muscle memory could well lead you to the wrong position. However the switch is very differently designed compared to the rudder trim.
