Document.Compare does not notice changes in document using Java

We are using Aspose.Words 19.7 for Java.

We noticed that comparing input.docx to expected.docx returns no differences, i.e. no revisions, even though those two documents look different. Saving the compared document actually changes the document (output.docx) to expected.docx. Here’s the code:

Document doc = new Document("input.docx");
Document docB = new Document("expected.docx");
doc.compare(docB, "test", new Date());
int revs = doc.getRevisions().getCount();

Can you have a look at that please?
