It's normal, type is the FIRST clustering column so on disk, data are
sorted first by "type" naturally. C* does not have to perform any sorting
in memory.

And when you're using "order by type DESC", it's still not sorted in
memory, C* is just doing a backward-scan on disk starting from the
"biggest" value for type. At least that's what I've understood from the
pre-3.0 storage engine.
