A bulleted or numbered list is a composite object controlled by a paragraph style and a list style (in fact a numbering style). The associated list style takes over nearly every setting related to left paragraph limit (in left-to-right languages). Consequently, the indent of the paragraph style is disabled. Tuning indentation must be done in the “list” style.
