Huh? Really? Why is that? I don't see reasons for such a thing happening
when studying the algorithm.

For sure the proposed dependency-resolving algorithm which does not rely
on timestamps does not have that problem.

IIRC, it places branch tags as late as possible. I haven't looked at
it in detail, but an import immediately after the first commit against
the branch may yield a different branchpoint from the same import done
a bit later.
