No, I get the default boot order:

I see other settings imported correctly by VirtualBox (memory, cpus, 
storage controllers, network), and it doesn't display any error or 
warning if I import it manually:

$ VBoxManage import 
   vmdisk1	42949672960	-1 
centos-7-1-1.x86_64.vmdk	-1	-1

Virtual system 0:
  0: Suggested OS type: "RedHat_64"
     (change with "--vsys 0 --ostype <type>"; use "list ostypes" to list 
all possible values)
  1: Suggested VM name "centos-7-1-1.x86_64"
     (change with "--vsys 0 --vmname <name>")
  2: Number of CPUs: 1
     (change with "--vsys 0 --cpus <n>")
  3: Guest memory: 512 MB
     (change with "--vsys 0 --memory <MB>")
  4: Network adapter: orig NAT, config 3, extra type=NAT
  5: IDE controller, type PIIX4
     (disable with "--vsys 0 --unit 5 --ignore")
  6: IDE controller, type PIIX4
     (disable with "--vsys 0 --unit 6 --ignore")
  7: Hard disk image: source image=centos-7-1-1.x86_64.vmdk, target 
VMs/centos-7-1-1.x86_64/centos-7-1-1.x86_64.vmdk, controller=5;channel=0
     (change target path with "--vsys 0 --unit 7 --disk path";
     disable with "--vsys 0 --unit 7 --ignore")
Successfully imported the appliance.

The Debian images don't even bother to specify a boot order, I doubt it 
makes a difference in practice.  But if you think it's important, you 
can file a bug report against Image Factory (imgfac.org) - such a change 
would have to be made upstream.

Best regards,
