If you open a vector file with multiple layers you get the "Select vector layers to add..." dialog.
That dialog includes a column "Number of features" with counts of the features per layer.
If you sort that column, it will be sorted alphabetically (1, 10, 100, 2, 3) but it should be sorted numerically. See the attached screenshot.
The same applies to the Layer ID column.

Confirmed by duiv in master, I am on 2.18.

You can use the attached sample gpkg to reproduce.
