Rearranging of modifiers for linked objects no longer works

System Information

Graphics card: GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER/PCIe/SSE2 NVIDIA Corporation 4.5.0 NVIDIA 461.72

Blender Version
Broken: version: 2.93.0, branch: master, commit date: 2021-06-02 11:21, hash: rB84da05a8b806
Worked: 2.92

Short description of error
For linked and overridden collections, the position of modifiers in the modifier stack can no longer be changed. In the example, this has the effect that you can no longer correctly deform an object within a linked collection that contains a particle system with a lattice. In version 2.92 this was still possible.

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error

  1. Open attached file Rearrange_modifiers_scene.blend
  2. Try to set the lattice modifier above the particle system modifier to achieve the required order for the example to work

Sorry, I found out that it does work, but only via the drop-down menu, not via drag & drop!

According to T79635 this action should be possible, and it is regression from 2.92, even though that didn't allow to move modifier of overridden object.
