I attach a minimal example, test.zip. I will explain about the contents:

Now I have fig.pdf as an original figure, and I want to rotate it clockwise.
Of course I can rotate fig.pdf by \rotatebox, but I choose to rotate it

$ pdftk fig.pdf cat 1east output fig-rot.pdf

rotates fig.pdf clockwise (that means insertion of /Rotate 90).
Adobe Reader guarantees rotation, as shown in what-i-see.png.

When I compare the results from "pdflatex test.tex" and "xelatex test.tex",
only xelatex does not rotate fig-rot.pdf, even though I rotated it

/Rotate (Rotate integer) appears in PDF Reference: please see TABLE 3.27
"Entries in a page object", in the same place as the definition of
