A group is a shorthand for colocation and order constraints between its
members. So, you should use either a group, or a colocation set, but not
both with the same members.

If you simply want to reorder the sequence in which the group members
start, just recreate the group, listing them in the order you want. That
is, the first member of the group will be started first, then the second
member, etc.

If you prefer using sets, then don't group the resources -- use separate
colocation and ordering constraints with the sets, as desired.
