I've checked the unsorted order of my /sys/dev/block, which is
essentially random, as is the order of block devices in the output
of mount, yet lsblk gives me a nice sorted lists:

Without -x it's sorting in device major:minor order, which happens to be alphabetical in your install purely by chance.
