One more followup for anyone who is interested:
I tried out the Linux program mkisofs, which is accessible for Windows through CDR Tools, to see if there was a solution. It turns out not. There is an option for mkisofs (-sort) that will write the file data in a user determined order. I was therefore able to write the MP3 files to an ISO (then to disk) in whatever order of LBA that I wanted. However, it turns out that my in-dash MP3 CD player is following the order given in the directory of the folder, and the -sort option doesn't change this. Using IsoBuster, it's easy to see that while the files have the LBA order I wanted, a sector view of the directory shows the names are still in alphabetical order, and that's what the player uses.
