Yes. Order will be as encountered, which is likely the order of
install since the package b-tree retrieval keys are monotonically increasing
persistent integers (and across --rebuilddb unless /var/lib/rpm/Seqno
has been removed/recreated).

It's still better to consolidate triggers: the context in which triggers
are fired is highly non-trivial to ensure success with dependencies.
