Writer doc showing bug in section endnotes
Version: 22.214.171.124 (x64)

1. Open the attached writer doc. Note that a section has been created and the option taken to allow Endnotes to collect at the end of it.
2. Open Endnote (paragraph style) > Indents and Spacing. Incrementally increase "Spacing below paragraph": each time press "Apply" and observe the changes on the page.
EXPECTED RESULT: The paragraph spacing below each endnote gradually increases. The spacing between the first endnote and "References" should remain the same.
ACTUAL RESULT: The spacing under "References" also (unexpectedly) changes—and in an unpredictable way.
3. Reset the "Spacing below paragraph" to zero. Now play with the "Spacing above paragraph" property in the same way.
RESULT: A similar kind of bug.
3. Reset the "Spacing above paragraph" to zero. Now play with the "Line spacing" property in the same way.
RESULT: Again the spacing under "References" changes, and in an unpredictable way.
I confirm it with

Dear R. Green,
To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.
There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.
If you have time, please do the following:
Test to see if the bug is still present with the latest version of LibreOffice from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/
If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.
If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.
Please DO NOT
Update the version field
Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not
appropriate in this case)
If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:
1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3) from https://downloadarchive.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/old/
2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to 'inherited from OOo';
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add 'regression' to keyword
Feel free to come ask questions or to say hello in our QA chat: https://web.libera.chat/?settings=#libreoffice-qa

Yes, I can confirm the bug on linux as well.
P.S. Incidentally, is there a setting in Writer to temporarily highlight sections (other than change, say, the colour in the "Edit sections dialogue)?
