Instead of building the Table of contents by "paragraph style", create a
Index of type "Table of Contents" using "Index marks".

In the example I insert the mark after the first word (or number) of the
new chapter, to prevent it from getting moved or erased if someone later
works on vertical spacing with hard returns.

To create new hidden entries

   1. Set the cursor to each location you want the TOC to point to. Then in
   the Insert Menu - > Index and Table of Contents -> Index Entry
   - Index type : Table of Contents
      - Entry : (text you want to appear on the TOC page)
      - level : if you want to style some entries differently set them to a
      different level, then assign the alternate style in the TOC setup.
      - Each time you click OK, you create an entry that matches the field
      values. If you have fields set to display you can see a light
grey block.
      - Extra entries may be deleted with the backspace or delete key as a
      character in the paragraph.

      2. Set the cursor to the point you want the TOC to appear. Create a
   TOC as normal, but choose Index marks instead of 'Additional Styles.'

First, I do understand how to create a
      TOC based on heading levels, but what I am trying to work out is
      how to add some kind of flag/marker (I am using the term bookmark)
      to a paragraph in order to have it appear as the first entry in a
      TOC.To illustrate with a hypothetical example: An author wishes to
      a 1 paragraph dedication on a page at the start of a book and have
      the word "Dedication" appear as the first entry in the TOC, but
      does not want the word to appear on the dedication page in the
      form of a heading.It would be much appreciated if someone could
point me to a source
      of information about this, because my own searches have uncovered
