Repackaged book-document cross-references do not update file path
A series of documents in a Book have cross-references to one another. All are correct and working properly.
I create a new package for my publisher and test the cross-references:
they are pointing at locations in my original files rather than the ones in the new package.
Since those files exist, the cross-references have good status. Moving that package to a new computer breaks them, of course.
This is MOST annoying. I have hundreds of cross-references, and they all get lost when I copy the file to a new location with a different directory structure. Surely this is something that "package files" should take care of, as it does with the location of the individual files in a "book".

FWIW: I see this issue as well.
Tested with German InDesign CC 2019 on Windows 10.

I agree. I had an exchange on the topic under "Cross-references lost when copying files " and we came to the same conclusion that this is a bug that needs attention.
