        This is because the old prep way
        allowed you to specify the order of the three atoms

Meaning the 3 peripheral atoms. For a definition of improper
torsions, see -

                                 / \
                                I L

                           Improper I-J-K-L

I believe non-planar impropers are needed in the united-atom ff
because missing H's deprive the system of torsions that would
define the heavy-atom geometry.
