LIGHTROOM Write keywords as hierarchy, but why isn't it in order?

My Lightroom keywords are setup in a hierarchy as I work with a lot of models, make-up, hair and so on. On each shoot, several people are credited on each image. However, when I export the image the keywords are in a random order. For example I have the following setup hierarchy:

USA > Wisconsin > Milwaukee
Model > Jennifer
Make-Up > Sally
Hair > Becky

However, even with the "write keywords as lightroom hierarchy" checkbox checked on export, the keywords are in a seemingly random order:

Wisconsin, Hair, USA, Becky, Sally, Jennifer, Make-Up, Milwaukee, Model

How on Earth to get this to work in order so it is useful? What I have done is make it so that each keyword has a synonym that is correct and just export that, which is silly and time consuming.
