ScriptRunner IssuePicker Ignoring ORDER BY


We have a custom scripted field configured as a IssuePicker field, which uses a JQL query to populate a list of options in a Select field.

The issues are filtered correctly according to the JQL, however the ORDER BY in the JQL is being ignored. We're trying to order the results alphabetically by Summary in the select options, however the order appears to be random each time.

When I test the JQL in Jira search, the results are ordered correctly, but it doesn't maintain that when being used in the IssuePicker.

Is there another way to determine the order in which issue results appear in the IssuePicker field?

I've been unable to find any information at all about how the Issue Picker actually handles sorting, it seems pretty random.

Does anyone have any ideas or information that might lead me in the the right place? Thank you
