The head entry is generated each time you commit (actually there's two
changes - the new info is added as literal data, and the existing head
is turned into a delta).  All remaining deltas are then copied from
the existing file.

Since I think it's extremely unlikely the GNU Diff is actually
producing  the information backwards (someone would have noticed a bug
like that) I can only assume something is modifying the data after the
diff has occurred.  I've no idea what, though.
