Are the block producers shuffled between rounds in the new hybrid DPoS + BFT?

Say there are 4 block producers. Assume blocks are produced in the following order:

  • t = 1: A
  • t = 2: B
  • t = 3: C
  • t = 4: D

Are the producers shuffled in the new hybrid DPoS + BFT system from t = 5 to 8 and so on?

Every 126 seconds the top 21 block producer by vote weight produce 12 blocks each in alphabetical order by EOS account.
