Follow-up Comment #1, bug #15167 (project findutils):

Actually in your example the contents of the directory are not sorted. 
Instead, ls is sorting them (ls is required to sort its arguments).  The find
program, on the other hand, is not required to do this.  The find program just
prints the filename in the order they are returned by the kernel.

Hence this is not a bug; find is doing what it is supposed to do.
