Because you have a domino effect. The ordering between two services in systemd
depends on *both* services not using LSB headers, so removing LSB headers from
one service file won't cause it to be ordered the same way as before WRT other
services, if those services have LSB headers themselves (either old ones or
just added ones)

Therefore not only it is not possible to restore the old ordering by removing
headers, but each time one LSB dep is added to one service file to fix a
systemd problem, it can destabilize all the other services that depended on
being ordered by number WRT this service.
