Do you actually see breakage?  I get

<a href="#org1946c66">Indemnity rights not assignable</a>

coupled with

<a id="org1946c66"></a>

at the referent, which is correct I believe.

So what problems are you seeing (other than that the label looks funny)?

solve it.

LaTeX export can override these labels with org-latex-prefer-user-labels
(see its documentation for the rationale), but there is no similar
provision for HTML export.

The issue (actually not quite the same issue but it *is* related) last
came up about a month ago:

to do something similar with HTML export:


The underlying rationale in that thread was that one might want
predictable labels so that they could be used e.g. in CSS to style
