Would a backup/restore change the physical layout to match the logical?

It could, but it doesn't. A slightly smarter restore would sort the fields
by alignment, recreate the table physically from the most restrictive
alignment to the least, then set the RDB$FIELD_POSITION to recreate the
original layout, of course considering any preset positions. That might be
a good "summer of code" project.
