This is because by default, the ensureForeignKeyOrder parameter for
the writeDataToDatabase subtask is set to true. This will cause
DdlUtils to defer the insertion of rows until all rows that this row
references, are already written to the database.
If you update DdlUtils and set the new verbosity flag to debug, then
DdlUtils will write out which rows are held back and why.

Could you post more info (which db, the relevant schema, etc.) ?
DdlUtils in general does not modify the data so this might be
something that the JDBC driver returns.
