indeed, the order in which the modules are applied is fixed, this is done to maximize the final quality by minimizing the number of change in colorspace and resulting quantification artifacts
you can see the complete order by clicking on the selected group tab (thus unselecting it) the modules will all be displayed in the order in which they are applied (bottom to top)

As I understand it, this is one of the key features of GEGL, which the article says is the technology underpinning Darktable and should be coming soon to a GIMP near you. The idea is that picture edits are treated as a directed acyclic graph, where the vertices are images and the edges are transformations. It can cache intermediate images to speed up processing, but the basic approach is to store the original image and the transformations rather than the final image.
