I'm suspecting it's more of a record selection, or grouping they

Agreed that is probable, but they put forth no such implication. I
offered a reply in response to what they had posited. And my
recommendation for sorting stands, irrespective of any other presumed
needs; i.e. sorting on the column, that apparently already is defined
conducive for that operation, rather than an order by a\the expression.
However they were and are certainly welcome to share the relevant
information for the scenario, instead of offering either half-baked or
faux explanations of apparent intent; I doubt anyone has actual
prescience or a crystal ball to divine their actual intentions. There
is little to gain from being coy or deceptive, being the source, who is
asking of others for their assistance.
