Spurious changes when comparing document to itself

We are using Aspose.Words for .NET 16.8 to create diffs between docx files and to convert those diffs to html. Find attached a docx document (example.docx) and the resulting diff when comparing the document to itself(!)*. There shouldn’t be any difference, but diff.docx shows that Aspose claims than an “” has been deleted (whatever that is). When converted to html, the image is shown with ins and del tags. The diff was created using Document.compare and Document.save.

* This is a reduced test case. The problem persists when unrelated changes are made to the document.
