Shape changed during conversion from .doc to .docx (java)

During conversion from .doc file to .docx using Aspose Words for Java a shape has been changed. Please look at code below:

    import com.aspose.words.Document;
    import com.aspose.words.SaveFormat;

    public class Main
        public static void main(String[] args) throws Exception
            String inputFile = "C:/test/input.doc";
            String outputFile = "C:/test/output-aspose.docx";
            Document asposeDoc = new com.aspose.words.Document(inputFile);
  , SaveFormat.DOCX);

I have also attached input and output file from both Aspose and MS Office Word: (25.7 KB).
The shape does not get changed when using MS Office Word for conversion.

I use Aspose Words 16.11.0., but I managed to reproduce the issue on the newest version of Aspose Words for Java.
