IIR all of these single handle valves
Ear Font Circle Fashion accessory Metal

allow cold water to flow first and if opened far enough we get warm / hot water. My question is; if the hot and cold supply lines are swapped from their usual positions during installation hot would flow first followed by warm / cooler the more we open the valve ?

If you swap the positions of hot and cold supplies, you will get hot water first, since the handle rotates in a counterclockwise motion.
BTW: When you have two sinks back to back on one wall feeding from the same hot/cold lines, one faucet will have the hot/cold reversed, and must be corrected to follow standard practice.
