Renumber Documents incorrectly handling formula

Just going through some processes and attempted to renumber some books to update their naming to follow a new convention and found something odd in the application of marks.

 

Have a book "[02] Facility 02", where the tag is generated by the formula '[' + STRZ(BOOK_ORDERNO, 2, 0) + '] Facility ' + LOCATION_TAG

  • BOOK_ORDERNO = 2
  • LOCATION_TAG = 02

 

After running this through the renumber documents process (Whole Project, Update Marks) the book is now tagged as "[02] Facility 01", where 01 is the first location listed in the locations manager.

This has been repeated for the same results a number of times. Does't even seem to be just the LOCATION_TAG, the same results are seen when using FUNCTION_TAG in the book tag as well. The tag value will re-assert itself if I adjust any setting in the book properties but that defeats the point of the 'Renumber' functions.

 

Is this a bug or expected behaviour that I just am not understanding?
