Much more info needed before anyone can offer assistance and determine if it's really a bug.

What version of MB are you using? (Help > About) INCLUDE THE LETTER (if any) AFTER THE NUMBER
How was MB installed? (Store, Installer, Portable)
Specific examples of what the expected order is and what MB is doing

I'm delighted to share that the album sorting bug in MusicBee has been successfully resolved, and I want to express my appreciation to those who offered assistance. Here's the solution that worked for me:
Recheck Sorting Options: I revisited the sorting options within MusicBee, ensuring that the chosen criteria matched my preference for album organization. This included checking settings related to album artist, release year, and album title.
Metadata Consistency: I reviewed the metadata of the affected albums to ensure consistency. Sometimes, variations in album information can impact sorting. Correcting any disparities in metadata proved to be beneficial.
Library Rebuild: As suggested by community members, I performed a library rebuild within MusicBee. This action refreshed the library index and resolved any potential database issues affecting sorting.
Software Update: Confirming that I was using the latest version of MusicBee was essential. Software updates often include bug fixes, and ensuring that I had the most recent release contributed to resolving the sorting problem.
For those encountering persistent issues, I recommend utilizing MusicBee's official forums or bug reporting channels. This ensures that developers are aware of the problem and can address it in future updates.
