Header and footers are properties of page styles. In general, documents will use a number of page styles, and you may wish to insert headers or footers into some of them or to insert different ones into different styles. So you choose the page style into which you want to insert the header or footer.

Every text (Writer) document starts with the Default page style. You may create others. What has happened here is presumably that the conversion process from .docx has created a page style to match the behaviour of the original .docx file. You can check which parts of your document are styled as "Converted1" and which - if any - as "Default" and insert your headers or footers appropriately.

I trust this helps.
