Page properties report not sorting by date

We're using Confluence Server v5.8.4. I'm using the Page Properties Report macro to aggregate info about various projects. Within the data, there's a column named "Target release". I've set the Page Properties Report macro to sort by this column, but it's not working correctly. The content of the column is a string representing a date formatted using the "yyyy-MM-dd" format.

When I first load the page, the column is sorted like this:

After clicking the column header to manually sort the column, it sorts it correctly:

The strange thing is, if I were to start with only a couple pages to pull the report from, it seems to work, but as I add more pages the sorting stops working. I can't tell if the issue is somehow related to the content on the pages outside of the Page Properties macro, but it somewhat seems like it is.

Am I missing something about how this macro and sorting should work?

Was there ever a solution to this problem?
