Watermark disappears

I’ve encountered an abnormal behavior for watermark. I’m using aspose.words 17.9 version. Watermark doesn’t appear on my system, whereas it perfectly displays on other fellow developers machines. I don’t know if library is blocking watermark or what’s the reason. Please help me out as same issue occurred in production environment. Also please tell me if MS-Office is mandatory for aspose?
I’m providing my code, I copied from insert watermark example which is available here: https://docs.aspose.com/words/java/add-watermark/

    private static void insertWatermarkFormat(Document doc, String watermarkText, Map<String, Object> params) throws Exception {

        Shape watermark = new Shape(doc, ShapeType.TEXT_PLAIN_TEXT);
        String wmText = "";
        String previewText = getStringParamVal("preview",params);
        if(!"".equals(previewText)){
            wmText =  previewText.concat(System.lineSeparator()).concat(watermarkText);
        }
        else{
            wmText = watermarkText;
        }

        watermark.getTextPath().setText(wmText);
        watermark.getTextPath().setFontFamily("Arial");
        watermark.setWidth(500);
        watermark.setHeight(100);
        watermark.setRotation(-40);
        watermark.setBehindText(true);
        //        watermark.getFill().setColor(Color.getHSBColor(198, 5,98));
        //        watermark.setStrokeColor(Color.getHSBColor(198, 5,98));
        watermark.getFill().setColor(Color.lightGray);
        watermark.setStrokeColor(Color.lightGray);

        watermark.setRelativeHorizontalPosition(RelativeHorizontalPosition.PAGE);
        watermark.setRelativeVerticalPosition(RelativeVerticalPosition.PAGE);
        watermark.setWrapType(WrapType.NONE);
        watermark.setVerticalAlignment(VerticalAlignment.CENTER);
        watermark.setHorizontalAlignment(HorizontalAlignment.CENTER);

        Paragraph watermarkPara = new Paragraph(doc);
        watermarkPara.appendChild(watermark);


        // Insert the watermark into all headers of each document section.
        for (Section sect : doc.getSections()) {
            // There could be up to three different headers in each section, since we want
            // the watermark to appear on all pages, insert into all headers.
            insertWatermarkIntoHeader(watermarkPara, sect, HeaderFooterType.HEADER_PRIMARY);
            insertWatermarkIntoHeader(watermarkPara, sect, HeaderFooterType.HEADER_FIRST);
            insertWatermarkIntoHeader(watermarkPara, sect, HeaderFooterType.HEADER_EVEN);
        }

    }
    private static void insertWatermarkIntoHeader(Paragraph watermarkPara, Section sect, int headerType) throws Exception {
        HeaderFooter header = sect.getHeadersFooters().getByHeaderFooterType(headerType);

        if (header == null) {
            // There is no header of the specified type in the current section, create it.
            header = new HeaderFooter(sect.getDocument(), headerType);
            sect.getHeadersFooters().add(header);
        }

        // Insert a clone of the watermark into the header.
        header.appendChild(watermarkPara.deepClone(true));
    }
