I am familiar with clearing styles as you suggest; our problem is that the definitions get whacked, e.g., the bullets all disappear, requiring reapplication of, usually, the bullets and list style (to reconnect the styles with the list style) from the template.
Anyway, I am at this point following directives rather than trying to argue further. I don't think the problems will disappear, but who knows? Maybe I'll be proven wrong.
What you are describing shouldn't happen; that is, formatting shouldn't disappear for no apparent reason. Once set up with styles, formatting is generally stable in Word. For numbered and bulleted lists, specifically, setting up the numbering with styles, as has been suggested earlier in this thread, should prevent formatting from being lost.
