I created a custom hierarchical taxonomy for Woo-commerce Products using a plugin called Custom post types.
I then proceeded to add 3 entries like so:

I then went to a product and proceeded to select entry 1234.
Upon saving the product, the selected entry was moved to the very top of the hierarchy outside its parent.

I will try to attach screenshot.

Hi there, welcome to WordPress Trac! Thanks for the ticket.

Per the discussion in #10982, this is intentional behavior for the classic editor. A filter was added in [20710] / #20054, allowing plugins to change it. This plugin implements the change: Category Checklist Tree.

As noted in comment:1:ticket:38934, this is fixed in the block editor introduced with WordPress 5.0.
