Default Automatically Update Document Styles does not update

Office 2007 SP1
XP Pro SP3

Problem: Automatically Update Document Styles does not update

Assume you have a DOCX document.

In your document (not the template), modify the following built-in styles to
have underline and red:

Heading 1 -- linked paragraph and character style
Strong -- character style
No spacing -- paragraph style

Go to Developer tab | Templates | Document Template icon | Templates and
Add-ins Dialog | Templates tab | Automatically Update Document Styles
check-box

Check the Automatically Update Document Styles check-box.
Press OK button.

Problem: The built-in styles Heading 1, Strong, and No spacing are not reset
i.e. they are still underlined and red.
Note: Organizer points to Normal.dotm as expected.

Why are the styles not reset?
Thanks in advance.

What happens if you Ctrl+A, Ctrl+Q, Ctrl+Spacebar in the document?

Typing that sequence of keys cleared the word in the sentence with the Strong
character style. But the definitions of the styles remain unchanged.
Note that Automatically Update Document Style was checked when I did this.
So it is still not clear why Automatically Update Document Style does not
reset the styles to what is in Normal.dotm

Thanks in advance.
