I confirm it with

Version: (x64)
Build ID: 5dcbd1bb557450a2d658a710c163b310c0cee157
CPU threads: 4; OS: Windows 10.0 Build 18363; UI render: Skia/Raster; VCL: win; 
Locale: de-DE (de_DE); UI-Language: en-GB
Calc: CL

I've changed severity to critical because of data loss
Comment 3 David W. Snow 2020-05-03 16:12:04 UTC
1. In addition references headings are missing.
2. In addition Table of Contents, Table of Figures, Index of Tables and Bibliography are missing.
I assume that this is because they too are composed of fields.
