It shouldn't.  The sampling algorithm is designed to give each tuple the
same chance of ending up in the sample, and tuples are selected
independently.  (IOW each one of the {N \chooose n} possible samples has
the same probability.)   There are known problems with nonuniform
distribution of dead vs. live and large vs. small tuples, but AFAICS the
order of values does not matter.
