Buttons losing functionality when updating Table of Contents
When you have a graphic or textbox and its converted to a button its lossing functionality when updating the Table of Contents.
Apply go to Destination to the button and pick the text anchor it jumps too, when you update the Table of Contents the drop down list jumps back to the top link in the list. So it loses functionality.
I found the same thing to happen when you choose show/hide buttons. It clears out what you have picked for showing what buttons you want on the page, it sets them to the normal icon.
This is very frustrating. We are a large company that is always creating highly Interactive PDFs. This needs to get fixed right away or have a work around until its fix. Please let me know if samples are needed. This issue can always be duplicated.

I have the same issue and I am sorry to say that after all these years, as far as I know Adobe has not solved this yet.
My advice is to avoid InDesign for producing interactive documents and move to e.g. HTML-based solutions, which have the added benefit of responsiveness. Unfortunately I have some legacy projects that occasionally need to be updated.
This bug is incredibly annoying. It might be OK when dealing with a few buttons, but I have to work with hundreds of buttons in certain documents, and a slight change in the TOC would mean relinking all of them. Terrible.
I've this issue also! Its pathetic and costing me time
Very frustrating. I have to reset certain destinations each time I update TOC.
Same issue. Strange it still hasn't been resolved...

I did not find a resolution and its very frustrating that no one is addressing it. Its a big problem with long documents.
Hi Kristy, you posted this a while ago. Did you find a work around? I am having the same issue and it's frustrating.
