I agree, that it is unclear to the user.

So the rule seems to be:
- If there is the same numbering style before, LO continues numbering using
Context menu => Bullet and Numbering => Number List
- If a new numbering style is introduced (like Numbering 123), the numbering
continues using Context menu => Bullet and Numbering => Number List
This is indepent from adding the last break to the list or not.
Toggle Numbered List Button always continues the last list.
So not a bug, but perhaps the need for at least a little improvement to make
numbering more user friendly. I suppose an easy way could be to add "Restart
Numbering" to paragraph context menu.
