Actually, based on your first post where you gave:

Noce A:  md0 (drbd0, drbd1)
Node B:  md0 (drbd0, drbd2)
Node C:  md0 (drbd1, drbd2)

also for C you are hitting left side, so correct explanation would be:
when you write on md0 of A, you are only writing on half md0 of B
(left side) and half md0 of C (left side)
