That's incorrect.  In DES, the only difference between the encryption
and decryption is the order in which the round keys are used.  That's
pretty much the definition of a Fiestel Network.

In AES, in contrast, the differences between encryption and decryption
are a bit more pronounced.  Take a look at fips-197.pdf#page=25 and
fips-197.pdf#page=19.  The only function shared by both is
AddRoundKey.  SubBytes and InvSubBytes differ in that they use
different S-Boxes, InvShiftRows and ShiftRows shift the rows in
opposite directions, and MixColumns and InvMixColumns with a different
fixed polynomial.
