Well, according to the documentation: https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA/Using+Filters#UsingFilters-Definingafilter-specificcolumnorder
When the results of a saved filter are exported to Excel, the column order and choice of columns are those that were saved with the filter. Even if a user has configured a personal column order for the results on the screen, the saved configuration is used for the Excel export. To export using your own configuration, save a copy of the filter along with your configuration and then export the results to Excel.

You have to use "Excel (Current Fields)" to get the order and the fields from the used filter.

And as Daniel already mentioned, this only works for a saved filter, not for an unsaved search.
