The manpage was updated last year (commit db1414ec) with the following:

+Specifies a match to use, that is, an extension module that tests for a
+specific property. The set of matches make up the condition under which a
+target is invoked. Matches are evaluated first to last as specified on the
+command line and work in short-circuit fashion, i.e. if one extension yields
+false, evaluation will stop.

This clarifies the reported issue with match ordering.  Closing.
