Bookmarked content controls lose left hand side of bookmark

We’re using Aspose words for java and we’ve noticed an issue where a dropdown content control is inside a bookmark. Following update of the document, the left hand marker of the bookmark gets dropped. This problem didn’t exist in version 17.6. It looks like the bug was introduced in 17.8. I’ve tried your most recent 18.6 and the problem still exists.
