source line in Writer and result in EPUB

If a Writer document contains tracked changes, but View -> Track Changes is off, these changes are still exported into the EPUB File.
This behaviour is different from PDF Export, where the tracked changes are only exported if View -> Track Changes is on.
EPUB Export should behave like PDF Export, as this is what people would await.
The attachment shows one line of a Writer document (above) and the corresponding line in the EPUB document exported when View - Track Changes was off.

I can not confirm with Version:
Build ID: 41cd3e8e817c8c33a13608e62eeb06ce2c6977e4
CPU threads: 4; OS: Linux 4.15; UI render: default; VCL: gtk3; 

Seems to be fixed with dev version. Please could you test it with
dev version?  You can download it here:
Thank you

I installed Master using SeparateInstallGuii, as I am not sure how to install in parallel myself. But the Build ID is the same as you named:

Version: (x64)
Build-ID: 41cd3e8e817c8c33a13608e62eeb06ce2c6977e4
CPU-Threads: 4; BS: Windows 10.0; UI-Render: GL; VCL: win; 
TinderBox: Win-x86_64@62-TDF, Branch:master, Time: 2019-09-01_22:04:10
Gebietsschema: de-DE (de_DE); UI-Sprache: de-DE
Calc: CL

The problem persists.

I created an attachment with the document I used for testing. Creating the EPUB-File still shows incorrect output where changes were tracked:
I don't know if the page numbers I supply are constant in all cases, but they are approximately right.
- page 3, after the word and smbol copyright: I see 20118 (resulting from 2011 -> 2018)
-next page: my name is shown twice in the table, cused by moving it from one place to the other
- two pages forward: Date is 11.120.20172 and version is 3.36.0
