I've made no deliberate configurations anywhere in Emacs to set my
locale, so any deviations from default behavior are not being caused by
anything I'm aware of.

My .bashrc does set LC_COLLATE=C, but I don't know if Dired absorbs
environment from your .bashrc or not.  For what it's worth, I also have
the same LC_COLLATE=C in most of the remote machines I use, but I'm not
getting that effect when I'm in Tramp.

Basically, I'd like to get LC_COLLATE=C behavior everywhere.  Is Dired
affected by environment setup in .bashrc?  Is Tramp?  .bashrc is the
only place I have any locale settings that I know of.

He that would make his own liberty secure must guard even his enemy from
oppression; for if he violates this duty, he establishes a precedent
that will reach to himself.
