Could you give us a reproducible example? Following the example on the help page

fm <- lme(Orthodont)
plot(Orthodont)

plot(augPred(fm, level = 0:1))

gives me the same ordering on both plots.

Possibly. plot.augPred produces a Trellis plot, and usually arguments to the underlying plotting function can be passed on through the top-level call. e.g., with the Orthodont data

plot(augPred(fm1, level = 0:1), skip = rep(c(F,T), c(16, 2)))

or

p <- plot(augPred(fm1, level = 0:1))
update(p, skip = rep(c(F,T), c(16, 2)))

You would of course have to know what valid arguments are; for that see ?xyplot and ?update.trellis (in the lattice package).
