Files saved as .doc lose font associated with fields.
Steps to reproduce:
1. Create a new document
2. Insert > Field > Page Number
3. Select the text in the Page Number field
4. Choose a different font for it (e.g. Courier New -- something that's not the default)
5. File > Save as > Microsoft Word 97/2000/XP/2003 (.doc)
6. Close document
7. Reopen it in Libreoffice
Contents of field will have reformatted into a different style.
Field will remain the same, maintaining the original formatting.
Note: This is only the case with .doc; it works as expected in the native .odf file format. It only seems to change the font -- other formatting seems to stay intact.

Thanks for bugreport

Changing version to 3.3.4 as most early reproducible
Workaround: use odt format for transferring documents to msWord
