    You are mixing up

    1. the order of storing coded characters in memory (where "logical" order basically means to store
    them in the order as they are spoken or otherwise logically sequenced)


    2. the sorting of strings. The latter is something entirely different. See UTS #10 Unicode Collation
    Algorithm for that.
