Image in footer changes position when saved to pdf


I’ve found a potential issue with saving word documents to pdf. Could you please take a look?
I’m using Aspose.Words .Net 22.5.0 with license applied.

I’m running the following code to import the contents of Source.docx to the footer of a new document:

var sourceDocument = new Document("D:/Source.docx");

var document = new Document();
var builder = new DocumentBuilder(document);

var importer = new NodeImporter(sourceDocument, document, ImportFormatMode.UseDestinationStyles);
var footer = document.FirstSection.HeadersFooters.First() as HeaderFooter;

var refNode = footer.FirstChild;

foreach (var paragraph in sourceDocument.FirstSection.Body.Paragraphs)
    var importedNode = importer.ImportNode(paragraph, true);
    footer.InsertBefore(importedNode, refNode);


The position of an image differs when saving as pdf and docx.
Please note that it worked as expected in version 21.8 but not 21.9.

Please see the attached zip file for the source document, pdf outputs from versions 21.8, 21.9 and 22.5 and docx output from version 22.5.
