Dear Hung Nguyen,

The ordering is described on the mentioned webpage:

Further remarks

The degrees  are ordered by  increasing size  for sufficiently large  q. But
note  that for  small  special values  of  q the  ordering  can be  slightly
different. Also for some small q some of the degrees may not occur (when the
polynomial describing the multiplicity specializes to zero).

In particular, the answer to your question is yes (higher polynomial degree
will give larger numbers when evaluated at sufficiently large q).

Best regards,
