Take a look at udev(7), where it says:

The udev rules are read from the files located in the default rules directory /lib/udev/rules.d/, the custom rules directory
       /etc/udev/rules.d/ and the temporary rules directory /dev/.udev/rules.d/. All rule files are sorted and processed in lexical
       order, regardless in which of these directories they live.
