Series in Title not working right

I've got some series that write out of order (Star Wars, Star Trek, etc) so when I add them to my Calibre Library I add say instead of Book 1, it would be Book 1.01 Or something like that.

However when I copy to my Paperwhite, it copies it as 01, 1.1 Which means that Book 2 in a series would still be placed ahead of book, for example:

Galactic Football League [01] The Rookie
Galactic Football League [02] The Starter
Galactic Football League [03] The All Pro
Galactic Football League [1.1]Title Fight
Galactic Football League [2.1] The Reporter

Anyone know what I can do to fix this?

From the template help page:
{series_index:0>5.2f} - Five characters, consisting of two digits with leading zeros, a decimal point, then 2 digits after the decimal point
