You don't actually need this save-match-data, right?  Because there is
already one at the top level of the function (which I'm also not sure is
really needed, but probably best not to touch that).

IMO, a dolist + catch & throw would be a bit more readable; it took me
some puzzling to realize that the early exit was the "non-optimized"
case.

  (and keep-order
       (let* ((case-fold-search nil)
              (alts (mapconcat #'regexp-quote strings "\\|")))
         (and (catch 'has-prefix
                (dolist (s strings)
                  (unless (and (string-match alts s)
                               (= (match-end 0) (length s)))
                    (throw 'has-prefix s))))
              (concat (or open "\\(?:") alts "\\)"))))
