Threading is done by quilt and it has been doing that for a pretty long time.

I do not have any control over how my ISP sorts these emails. You
repeatedly asked me to use quilt 0.60 because I guess you believed that it
could do some magic. I upgraded specially for you. I really do not know
what else to do to appease you. I could chance ISPs hoping that another
will deliver them in sequence but that is not easy to do. Maybe Amazon in
some way borks the headers.

People are not allowed to use quilt for patches submitted to you?

I just checked and git send-mail does the threading in the same way as
quilt. There would be no change.
