    I have a Galaxy tablet S5e running the Android 9.0 OS. I use this tablet with a Book Cover Keyboard so the preferred orientation is always landscape.

    Some apps start up in portrait (their preferred orientation). I have found nothing native to the tablet software nor in third party apps that will reorient these particular apps to landscape.

    Do applications have the final say as to orientation?

    For the most part, yes. Some are designed to be orientation-agnostic, some have a forced orientation for a reason, some are just poorly-coded and it's done not by purpose. Unfortunately, you may need root in order to force an orientation change for apps requesting a particular direction.
