Just to clarify how it works currently – artboards in the PDF are currently listed based on looking at your artboard layout on XD’s canvas in “reading order." The PDF page order will start with artboards in the topmost row left to right, then move on to the next row of artboards below that (starting with the leftmost artboard again), etc.

One work around is to create a new blank XD file, select each artboard, copy and paste into the new file in the order you want. Far from ideal, but it beats reordering pages in an exported PDF each time.
