The issue seems specific for the certain device as the last Galaxy  Note device with S Pen was designed the way to prevent this issue. But here it is made more sophisticated and also in the user manual of the device it is mentioned as precaution. Inside the S pen slot there are multiple levers and sensors that control the S pen thru device software. Thus the complicated design becomes problematic when you do this mistake.

There is a lever inside the slot that detects the presence of S pen while another lever holds the Pen inside. When you insert it wrong way first it will damage the first level but it may still detect the pen. But when it goes to the second lever the pressure will damage it and it will be unable to eject. Thus if you apply some force the pen may come out but it’s both levers will not be able to function normally afterward.
