The order of messages after requeue is left unspecified by AMQP. You
will find a description of ordering guarantees made by RabbitMQ here:

The requeue behaviour changed in v2.7.0. There is no way to obtain the
previous behaviour on recent brokers. The closest approximation to the
previous requeue behaviour is to acknowledge and republish a fresh copy
of the message, which will then be enqueued as a new message.
