When using page numbers, one may have to use "Update Fields" - an
extraneous step - to have a consistent doc.

With the use of section numbers, the extraneous step and the
inconsistency are altogether avoided.  Remember the "section numbers"
are computed by ODT exporter by hand (i.e., these section numbers are
NOT "auto-magically" plugged in by LibreOffice.)

It is more important to have a consistent document.  So, use of page
numbers can be an configurable option.  It should NOT be the default
option.  When using page numbers, please mention in the docstring/manual
that updating of fields is a user responsibility.


A potential patch will touch `org-odt-label-styles' and
`org-odt-category-map-alist' or steal significantly from these
