Does the order of 'Packages' ie. PKID matter?

Question

I'm just doing a bit of checking of mods that may or may not be included in certain 'Unofficial' patch mods that are around, specifically I was looking at REPCONNYukichigai Unofficial Patch, and when I loaded them up I noticed 3 Packages are shown as conflicting because REPCONN lists them in reverse order to both FalloutNV & YUP. (yes I know the guide says that isn't included, but things change and maybe...) (for the record, it still isn't included)

 

So my question is: does this truly matter? On the surface it looks like it shouldn't because those are still being handled by the game engine, I can't see why the order things get listed would matter if those records in the same plugin are loaded one way or another.

xEdit has 2 types of arrays: sorted and unsorted. In sorted arrays the order of elements doesn't matter and you can't move them up/down using right click menu since xEdit itself determines their order for better conflicts resolution. The most common example is leveled lists.

In unsorted arrays you can move elements around manually, their order does matter. Example is conditions.

 

So the rule of thumb - if you can move elements in a list up/down then array is unsorted and order does matter, if you can not move elements then array is sorted and order doesn't matter.
