You and I have the same issue. UID and CN are not in the schema they
are compiled into LDAP some how, so there is no way to apply an
ordering rule. I can not find if this is possible, or what is involved
in making it happen.

As you can see uid is commented in the schema file as is cn

# attributetype ( 0.9.2342.19200300.100.1.1
#       NAME ( 'uid' 'userid' )
#       DESC 'RFC1274: user identifier'
#       EQUALITY caseIgnoreMatch
#       SUBSTR caseIgnoreSubstringsMatch
#       SYNTAX{256} )

In the past this was possible, or the attributes had an ordering. I do
not know when this changed.

You can find these attributes defined in the code in servers/slapd.

However, I will note, the definitions of these attributes are RFC defined. They have no ORDERING rule on purpose.
