Tom, the document is ODT format, but... I did copy and paste from Word, so
that's part of the cause.  Things improved when I realized I was not
selecting my entire header. I've been using Libre for all of 2 days so I
didn't realize 3x click selected a sentence, and 4x click selected
paragraph.  Turns out my header ended in a '.' and a space, so it looked
fully selected but it wasn't. This seemed to be throwing of the "clear
formatting" and update style.  Tricky.

Hi :)
Is the document in Odt format or is it a DocX or Doc?  Odt tends to behave

I've had similar problems when pasting things from Word documents and the
things you have already tried are usually more than enough to fix it.
Another thing i tried was to "copy" the heading from LO but then re-paste
it a few lines later using

Shift Ctrl v

to paste as unformatted text, again, and then applied the heading style to
it.  That's usually fixed the most awkward ones.  Then just deleted the
previous version of the heading along with a few lines before and after.

Tom :)
