as you have pointed out, your friend is an "experimented user of Max/msp".
in pd things are similar to max, but nevertheless different.
the placement of objects does not mean anything with respect to 
execution order.
the only rule, and it is not "hidden", is, that behaviour (time of 
execution) is undefined when multiple cords are connected to one outlet.
the only time, the placement of object has a meaning, is when creating 
[inlet]s and [outlet]s.

the rest has been answered by pix.
