A .doc file with automatically-numbered headings

"Heading 2" automatic numbering is mysteriously lost on DOC import.

1. Load the attached .doc file into LibreOffice with automatically-generated heading numbers.  These created by linking the paragraph types "Heading 1" and "Heading 2" to a list type named "Headings" ( per http://shaunakelly.com/word/numbering/numbering20072010.html ).

Expected behavior:
The first "Heading 2", with text "More stuff", should be preceded with the numbering "1.1" (as it is in Microsoft Word).

Actual behavior:
The "Heading 2" automatically-generated numbering is completely missing; only the text appears.

This may be related to #87052.  I tried working around the bug in #87052 involving DOCX import by creating a DOC file, and ended up with this probably-different bug.  Which means I'm stuck!

Confirmed in Word viewer that More Stuff really has 1.1 preceding it.

This bug is already present in 3.3.0.

A .doc file compared MSO LO

Repro LO 7.0+.
Comment 8 Justin L 2020-04-23 19:14:10 UTC
The Heading * styles in LO have special meaning, so it is dangerous to play with them. Check out tools - Chapter numbering and you will see that level 2 is empty. After fixing this I was able to round-trip it in LO.

So the question now is, why is Word accepting the numbering, but LO isn't?

repro 7.0+

This looks like the same thing as bug 106541

Ok, let's dupe to the newer report this time.
