Have you filed a feature request about it? I see a
10-year old bug #1554 mentioning something about

Considering the note that mutt can do this I wonder if
it can be used as an external command in Claws.

Imagine having to drag 100 messages in a thread... It
seems much easier to be able to just select all
messages and let the software thread them by
timestamp. In case of non-linearity/forks I would
rather use keyboard, e.g. Ctrl+Up/Down or
Ctrl+Left/Right (or Tab/Shift+Tab) to position the
message and its follow-ups in the thread. Similar to
how one moves lines and indents text in a code editor.
But of course I am painting a house which as far as I
understand is not even planned for building.
