Well, I should not have used the 'time' word.
The alpine documentation states about 'Arrival' sorting:
" The Arrival sort option arranges messages in the MESSAGE INDEX in the
order that they exist in the folder. This is usually the same as the
order in which they arrived. This option is comparable to not sorting
the messages at all. "
It is the same (non-)ordering available in Mozilla mail clients, with
the 'Order Received' option.
