Line outline doesn't show numbered indicators

When we have an RPGLE source open with the live outline open there is no reference of the numbered indicator.
Exemple *IN(10) and *IN12 are used in the program. Only *IN12 appear in the outline. Even with the search, I can't find the *IN(10). The indicator is not reconize by the outline.

SQLRPGLE is also having that same issue
