I've tried to find a trick or maneuver that makes them work systematically, but no luck: it really only works a small fraction of the time, for the moment. Still, I guess this means it's in progress...? Writing Kobo support to draw their attention to this thread and ask for a reply.
I have found that endnote navigation works quite well with Kobo EPUBs. There are problems however with non-Kobo EPUBs. The problems are: 1) there is no visual indicator that an endnote has been sucessfully activated such as there is for Kobo EPUBs, 2) it is difficult and sometimes impossible to activate an endnote, and, 3) if the publisher of the EPUB does not use numbers and underlines to indicate endnotes they are almost impossible to distinguish from the surrounding text.
