Bonjour Werner,
I send the same question one year ago, but the answer was not very positive as you could see in the answer at the bottom of my message

Yes, this is how it works in XEP now. We consider table
cells in a row to be "parallel" content, and don't establish
any order on them. I realize that this is a counterintuitive
behaviour; but it is really hard to impose an order.
(A simple example: what if the first cell is long enough
to go to the next page? You get note 1 on the next page,
after note 2; and there is nothing you can do about it -
until there is some sort of automatic footnote numbering).

We will see if the things can be improved for the next version;
however, I cannot promise an easy resolution or workaround.
Sorry for that.
