Can You Control Order in Layer?

This may be more of a Unity question, but I am a little confused about layers when in Unity. The first picture down below shows what the map looks like with an added object on top. It also shows the order in layer of one of the tiles in the properties window. However, whenever I play the game, the object goes under the map and as you can see from the second picture, the order in layer changes dramatically for that tile. It doesn’t matter what I set that object’s order in layer to, it always goes behind the map.

Edit: I would like for the object to be under the tiles that are on top of the ground, but above the ground tiles. Is that possible??
