from ?communities:

     ‘membership’ gives the division of the vertices, into communities.
     It returns a numeric vector, one value for each vertex, the id of
     its community. Community ids start from one.

You are right that it does not explicitly say that the order is
according to vertex ids, but is pretty much the default for all igraph
functions returning quantities for all vertices (e.g. degree,
betweenness, etc.). I'll make this clear in the documentation,
