As others have suggested, just use Absolute Numbering when in doubt. That should solve the problem.

@HopDavid:

 

Maybe it's just me, but I'm curious why the behavior has changed from "when it used to be easy". Nothing has changed in InDesign, so it is something with the file. When you have a moment, answering my intial questions will help you get to the bottom of it so that you don't need to force absolute numbering by adding the + sign.
