That's curious. On my RH 7.2 system (upgraded):
jeremy at students $ mkdir -p /tmp/test; cd /tmp/test
jeremy at students /tmp/test $ touch A B C a b c
jeremy at students /tmp/test $ echo *
A B C a b c
jeremy at students /tmp/test $ echo $LC_COLLATE
jeremy at students /tmp/test $ echo $LANG
So even though LC_COLLATE isn't set, the sorting works fine.
I agree, this stuff is freaking non-obvious.
