Instead of selecting "Square", choose a 4x6 profile from the library.  You'll probably have to make one yourself though.  Only takes a few second though.  Drop a 4x6 post into your plan, Convert Selected To Symbol, and add to library as Millwork.

you can make your own out of a P-Solid and then save it as a Millwork Symbol > set option to Newel/Post .

 

It can be a bit tricky at times getting posts oreintated correctly at corners when they aren't square though.

Drop that symbol back into the plan, rotate it 90 degrees, and just create a new symbol.  Use the first one as a 6 x 4, and the second one as a 4 x 6.  This basic technique comes in handy when creating 2D Blocks as well.

You can't in Plan once it's in an Auto Rail afaik, but you can Open the Symbol in the Library and rotate 90° it there , then reload the Symbol in the Railing, Newel DBX.

 

Or use Micheal's method so you have one of each :)
