Wandering NICs After OVF Export/Import

I am working on a vApp that requires very specific network placement and I have observed some really odd things.  I deploy a vApp from it's "raw" OVF that I received from one of our product teams.  I deploy it in our prod environment without issue and set the networks NIC0 - NIC4.  After getting all of the network information setup on the vApp, I exported it (as identical copy).  Here's where things get weird...

When I take the exported OVF and deploy it in our staging environment, the NICs have been moved around. I thought this was odd, so I tried the same thing with the "raw" OVF that I got from the product team and the NICs move around also.

Has anyone else seen this kind of behavior before?
