But this isn't really relevant to the question. More to the point
is this tidbit from the documentation for SELECT:
If the ORDER BY clause is specified, the returned rows are
sorted in the specified order. If ORDER BY is not given, the
rows are returned in whatever order the system finds fastest
This is not necessarily the order in which they're stored on disk.
