Quoting from the instructions...

The left/mid/right commands don't affect the formatting of superscript


The appearance of the whole citation list is governed by "\@cite", (for
full-sized cites) and "\@citess" (for superscripts).  For more extensive changes
to the formatting, redefine these.  For example, to get brackets around the
list of superscript numbers you can do:
(after "\makeatletter").
