Is there some reason why the master document does not render the
sub-documents in the same was as they are rendered when opened separately?

​One possibility is that there is a style conflict/override.
​Master document's styles override sub-document's. If you have the same
stule name in both the master document and the sub document, you will see
the master document's version only.

This is usually a neat feature​ (you can produce various output style for
the same sub-document), but might be a bit confusing. Even more confusing
is that this include page styles too, and that point is easily overlooked.

If you simply want all styles in the master document to be the same as in a
sub-document, you can try this: open the master document, open the format
list if not already open. In the "style and format" toolbar (or sidebar),
there is a button in the top-right corner (probably called "new style from
selection" in english). Click it, and select "load styles", then "from a
file", then select one of your sub-document.
​These step should replace all styles in the master document with the one
in the sub-document. If this does fix your issue, remember to change only
styles in the master document to keep all of them "in sync".​

​Of course, if that's not the issue at hand, feel free to dismiss my little
rant :)​
