`org-export-get-footnote-definition' doesn't return a full footnote
definition objects, but only contents.  Attributes are lost.

You need to retrieve the definition within the parse tree, using
`org-element-map', then extract the information you need. See for
example `org-export-get-footnote-definition'.

Note that there is no guarantee that there is a matching definition in
the parse tree: the reference could as well be inline, or referencing an
inline footnote reference.
