How to stop Calibre from adding a number to Chapter head

I'm assuming this is a newbie issue but for the life of me I can't figure it out?

Starting with a document in Word 2016 .docx. The chapter heads are tagged with the "Heading 1" style. In Calibre common conversions, I've changed the "h1" to "Heading 1". Heading 1 is formatted with a page break before in Word. The original document has a TOC already created and formatted with links to bookmarks in the document.

Now if I convert the .docx file to ePub everything works fine.

However, if I convert to old MOBI, the page breaks disappear and a number is added to the Chapter heads text, such as "2." This number appears to be the count of Heading 1 styles seen.

If I delete the .docx version from Calibre and convert the ePub version to MOBI, I get the page breaks but the number remains.

Can anyone tell me how to get rid of the number Calibre adds to the Chapter heads tagged as "Heading 1"?

Dont make your heading lists in word, i.e. dont give them numbering styles

What do you mean "numbering styles?" Sorry but that sentence doesn't make any sense to me?

I use something like "Chapter 1" and set it as a Heading 1 style. The style has no numbering attached to it. The conversion works fine in Doc -> ePub but fails in Doc -> MOBI.
