Tilemaps ignores Order of Layers until you enter to Play

2D

-

To reproduce:

1. Download the attached "TileLayerBug.zip" project and open in Unity
2. Open "Unity_Office_4th_Floor2" scene
3. Select "Floor" gameObject and observe that its Order in Layer is 0
4. Duplicate "Floor" gameObject and paint some Tiles on it
5. Observe that those Tiles are shown in Scene and Game windows
6. Enter Play mode
7. Observe that tiles that were painted on a duplicate of the "Floor" gameObject vanished

Expected results: Unity Editor should respect Order in Layers in Edit mode
Actual result: Unity Editor ignores Order in Layers until you enter Play Mode

Notes:
- This issue should appear on both Windows and macOS
- This might be not a Package bug but a Unity Editor bug

Reproduced on Unity 2019.4.29f1, 2020.3.16f1, 2021.1.17f1, 2021.2.0b7 and 2022.1.0a5

    Resolution Note:

    In this case the editor is respecting Order in Layers. Tilemaps with the same sorting layers and order in layer will be sorted by a tiebreaker in the system depending on the render queue which may not be the same in Edit and Play mode
    The rules for sorting for 2D Renderers can be found here: https://docs.unity3d.com/Manual/2DSorting.html
