What can cause scripted import order to change?

I have an offline filemaker go database that syncs back to a database on filemaker server.  For some reason, the import order changed on two of the import script steps.  Several fields were aligned wrong.  Both import steps were set to "update matching records" and "arrange by last order".  I really wish filemaker would let you keep  "arrange by matching names" when "update matching records" was selected, but it always changes to last order.

 

There were quite a few fields added and deleted in both files, but I thought new fields were always added at the end of import steps, and if a field is deleted it would show up as "field missing" next time you open the import step.

 

What are the scenarios that can cause the import field matching to change on it's own?
