After applying it in layer properties, it always returns to a default formula.

  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from Open to Closed

This is expected behavior, the rendering order is determined by the angle (because features overlap).

Convert it to a different renderer, your style will be preserved but you will be free to change and configure every detail (including rendering order).

Please reopen if you think there is a good reason why customization for the rendering order needs to be supported also within the 2.5D renderer.

In my case rendering order doesn't always have to be angle-based. I'm ordering building by area or z_order. As you mentioned, I can switch to geometry generator symbol, but I think more logical way is to allow sorting by any expression. (At least this option isn't greyed out in GUI, so when expression returns to a default one is a bit confusing).
