The first example file saved as odt, opened in Word and Writer

This is actually an import problem, since the Writer-exported odt xml contains the footnote table and Word opens it correctly.
Just Writer does not import it.

This is not good report.. and all was reported already, so really should have been just duplicated. 
DOCX was fixed. DOC and RF have their own bugs.
Comment 9 BogdanB 2021-04-01 21:25:37 UTC
The table is imported into the document in 7.2
