Does the same thing apply to the subgroup order? You probably need to
fix them too.

If it's called $LANG_fs, why include the fs_ in the keys?
Personally, I'd like to see this solution on the database side. Make
subgroups and fieldsets actual database elements, not fake entries in
the config table:
table config_values (group, name, value) PK (group, name)
table config_config (group, name, type, default_value, selectarray,
subgroup, fieldset, order_in_fs) PK (group, name)
table config_sg_order (group, subgroup, order_in_group) PK (group, subgroup)
table config_fs_order (group, subgroup, fieldset, order_in_sgroup) PK
(group, subgroup, fieldset)
Selecting the entire GUI would be a bit ugly. But you only have to
write that SELECT once.
FROM config_config cc, config_sg_order sg, config_fs_order fs
WHERE cc.group = sg.group AND cc.group = fs.group
AND cc.sgroup = sg.subgroup AND cc.subgroup = fs.subgroup
AND cc.fieldset = fs.fieldset
AND cc.group = '$group'
ORDER BY sg.order_in_group, fs.order_in_sgroup, cc.order_in_fs
