Incorect tag order (in my opinion)

I hope this is a bug since I don’t believe this tag order was created on purpose

Describe the bug
Similar tags are not in order anymore (by sorting by tags in a set) by different amounts of tags

To Reproduce

  1. Create a set with multiple pages
  2. Give 2 pages the same 2 tags
  3. Give another 2 pages the same 2 tags and one or more additional tag
  4. And some more pages with completely different tags
  5. Sort the pages of the set via tags
  6. Are the 4 pages starting with the first 2 similar tags in the right order?

Behavior at the moment

Colour, Black, White
Colour, Black, Green
Apples, Bananas
Apples, Oranges
Colour, Black
Colour, Black

Expected behavior

Apples, Bananas
Apples, Oranges
Colour, Black, White
Colour, Black, Green
Colour, Black
Colour, Black

or

Apples, Bananas
Apples, Oranges
Colour, Black
Colour, Black
Colour, Black, White
Colour, Black, Green

@XxxBalCion Please see the answer above.

I guess it would be work around that would fix the issues yes. Though if you have a lot of tagged objects it would be way easier to just sort them via tags instead of manual align them. The sort tag option basically works as it should be, object with similar tags are grouped like

Vehicle, Car
Vehicle, Car
Shop
Shop

But as soon as a third tag or more comes to it, it isnt grouped to it anymore.

Like

Vehicle, Car
Vehicle, Car
Shop
Shop
Vehicle, Car, Lamborghini

Fixing that would be a huge help.
I personaly do the most important tag first. The second and third one are more like subtags. It would just make sense if everything is grouped based on the mosed similar tags order.
