Has something recently changed that allows answers with lower scores to end up higher up than answers with higher scores?

enter image description here

I think I've seen this a number of times now in the past few weeks, and the above image is an example I've taken a screenshot of.

Neither post is accepted, and neither answer was written by the same user who wrote the question.

I'm not sure if this is a bug, or something was changed recently, or it's always been this way and the situation is causing this. I hope I'm not overlooking something obvious...

Another example:

Welp. Per comments below, I was overlooking something obvious., Thanks, User Doktor Mayhem.

    @DoktorMayhem Oh dang. Well now I feel silly. Just changed it back to votes. Thank you! Should I delete this then, or leave it for the community? – user45266 Feb 21 at 18:25
  • Could close it I guess. I think this is already covered on meta.se – Doktor Mayhem Feb 21 at 22:45
