How to find a section start and finish

I'm working with a document that originated in Word and it has a number of Word-style "Section breaks", which appear to work more like a "super pagebreak" than a Libreoffice section.

In "Edit Sections" I see numbered sections but these don't seem to relate to anything in the document. I can't see the section breaks, they seem to have turned into something more like page breaks, which in turn just show as indistinct dotted lines.

Clearly there is still some kind of break in the document as the footer changes as it goes from one page to the next, but I cannot see the specific point where this happens, and there is a block of text that I would quite like to mark as a section distinct from the rest of the document but I cannot see how to do this.

How can I tell where Sections 1, 2 and 3 in the sections menu actually appear in the text?

Clarification: I did have formatting marks enabled.
