Mail Merge: Group in multi sections

I'm trying to use the DocIO mail merge function to create my report. In my report, a group begins in a portal section and ends in a landscape section, but it not worked. If I move the EndGroup:GroupName merge field into the same section with BeginGroup:GroupName, it works perfectly. 

Is this a library bug?

Minh Giang, on further checking the reported problem, we have found that Begin and End Group of mail merge are in different sections in the template Word document. Currently, DocIO provides support for mail merge groups only within the same section or text body and doesn’t support separation of a group among multiple sections during mail merge.
