Sorting isn't working properly with me on Lightroom Classic 11.2.
Lightroom Classic 11.2
MacOS 12.3 on M1
I have a specific folder with about 500 images. There are around 30 flagged images with some having virtual copies and proof copies. Filters are off and no matter how I sort the folder these flagged images stay at the top and do not go to the spot they should. For example, if i sort by filename they stay at the top. Same if I sort by Capture Time.
Please forgive me if there is some setting to pin flagged photos to the top but this isn't something i've ever heard of.

The first 33 photos shown in the grid are in a stack (or perhaps multiple stacks, your editing has obscured the stack badges). You can tell from the dark arrows on the side, indicating that there are more photos in the stack preceding that photo:
and from the darker grey border around the thumbnails:
A stack sorts with other photos by the top photo in the stack -- the photos inside a stack never change their order. That's why the file names of the stacked photos are out of order:
Do the menu command Photo > Stacking > Collapse All Stacks, and then the visible thumbnails will be properly sorted.
