does the request go to that specific member, or get treated as any other request?

If you search the book, then you get the next in line.

One mistake that is often made is that you are browsing a member's bookshelf and then you click on the book link to read information on the book.  If you click the "Order" button from the book information page, you are not ordering from the member's shelf. You are ordering from FIFO.
If you truly want to order from a specific person, make sure their name appears at the top of the screen (as in "Bookshelf - member name") before you click the "Order" button.

Also you can verify the person the order is going to by hitting the Order More From Member Button before finalizing the order. Then if it didn't go to the person you want you just have to cancel the order.
