order of builds on a buildd: icu (optional/libs)

Based on what I've seen in other threads, the order in which packages
get built on a buildd is a function of, among perhaps other factors,
its priority and section.  I uploaded icu several days ago and have
watched other packages (including my other uploads) sneak in front of
it that shouldn't have based on these two factors.  For example, nip2
(optional/graphics, no reverse dependencies) built much faster than
icu (optional/libs).  The only thing I can think of is that the latest
icu builds two binary packages that have not previously existed
because it is a library with a new soname.  Does that impact it?
libicu21c2 and libicu21-dev, built by the old icu, have reverse
dependencies, but libicu34 and libicu34-dev don't yet.  (I'm waiting
to upload the packages that depend upon these until they are built on
all architectures.)

Is there a place where I could have looked (other than reading the
code to buildd and/or wanna-build) to find the exact method used to
calculate the build order?
