This, rather long, article explains the causes, explains why some workarounds don't work and offers one that does.
When you delete a Section Break, you are, in effect, merging two Sections into one.
With a Word 2010 doc I've been inserting a lot of cross-references to Headings and choosing the option to display the Heading Text.
But, when I go and actually change the text of the heading that the cross-reference is referencing, the cross-reference doesn't change its text. If not, how do I set things up so that if I change the text of a Heading that all cross-references would automatically update their text to match?
That is because it was written by a single author not working with Microsoft and not subject to peer review.
You will not find this chapter on the Microsoft site. You should have reviewed the bookmarks and cross-reference portions of Complex Legal Documents before tackling this chapter.
Typically, not all fields update immediately to reflect the source text.
(If it works in other versions, all the better; I originally had this problem with Word 2007, and nothing seems to have changed since then.) This includes cross-references, page numbers, tables of contents, indexes, headers, etc.

I’m still wondering why –up to now- there isn't an option that updates all the fields automatically!
