Current work around is in the Job XML to add the following

%pre --interpreter /bin/bash
nvram --print-config=boot-device > /mnt/sysimage/root/boot-device.bak
%post --interpreter /bin/bash
if [ -e /root/boot-device.bak ]; then
nvsetenv boot-device "$(cat /root/boot-device.bak)"
logger "Read boot-device.bak from /root"
logger "Error: /root/boot-device.bak does not exist!"
    										]]>	</ks_append>

This will capture the boot device order and then re-set the boot order to what was captured.
