I'm using flatpak from FlatHub on my Fedora 32 X64 bit Cinnamon edition.
I've tried the following steps
1. Open new document
2. change page style to "Endnote"
3. Enable header and write some text
4. Save, close and reopen
Couldn't reproduce the bug.
Is your bug about page style "Endnote" or about a document with andnotes (and perhaps a different page style. If this is the please describe the steps to reproduce or add a sample document.
It is a document (theses) that I used add endnotes to it's paragraphs, so I have at end of a document a page with "endnote style" generated by program. The issue is related to this last page of document which composed totally from 16 pages. At this last page (for references) I tried to add a header "References", but it can not saved !
I can not attached document because the theses still not published in a scientific journal .... I will try to create new document to attached it here.
I created new document "test" & tried it & issue reproduced. I added to 2nd page a header "References" (see attached screenshot) & saved it, then closed document. After that I re-opened it but header disappeared !

Thank for test document. It's important to know, that you've saved it as docx-file. Could you please attach the original odt-file? Thanks.
There is no original .odt file because I'm in a country where no one use it ! For that I'm enforced to use .docx format though it is closed source. I'm already set my LO to save document by default as a docx. & pptx.

But since you've created the file with LO, you're able to save it as odt. Please do so and attach this file.
Hi. I attached 2 .odt files:
test-1.odt which is a copy from .docx before adding & saving header. This to be fresh copy.
test-2.odt which is a copy from .docx after adding & saving header WHILE it is still opened not closed.
As you see, header is kept saved correctly in test-2.odt though it is lost from original .docx after close it & re-opened it again.

I confirm it with
Version: 188.8.131.52 (x64)
Build ID: 8349ace3c3162073abd90d81fd06dcfb6b36b994
CPU threads: 4; OS: Windows 10.0 Build 19041; UI render: Skia/Raster; VCL: win
Locale: he-IL (de_DE); UI: en-GB
Steps to reproduce
1. Open attachment 166097 [details] (see header with text on page 2)
2. Save as docx, close and reopen
No header on page 2 (same result when docment is opened in MS Word 2016)
I think, you want to add a heading to the endnote page. That is actually not possible but requested in bug 89736.
DOCX format does not know about page styles.
Plus, the endnote page styles is not a real page break/section anyway. It is just some automatic thing that happens.
In other words, this is all just complete emulation between two different ways of handling endnotes. There is no one-to-one correspondence between what LibreOffice can do and what DOCX can do. The header/footer is something that DOCX doesn't have, so it will just be "lost".
