Numerals displayed in Arabic Script for Hindi Language Documents

Numbers in Table of Contents and Numbered list in a Hindi document are being
shown  in Arabic Script, even though 
 Options-----Language settings-----Complex text layout-----General options and
changed the numerals to Hindi.

I have gotten round the problem by changing the numerals type to System,
instead of Hindi.

However for a Hindi language document, the numerals should be in Hindi by
default OR should work correctly when Hindi Numerals option is chosen.

--- It is possible that 'Hindi Numerals' under Options does not refer to
numerals in devanagari script for Hindi language but to "what the Arabs call
the "Hindi numerals", namely the Eastern Arabic numerals (٠‎ - ١‎ - ٢‎ - ٣‎ -٤‎
- ٥‎ - ٦‎ - ٧‎ - ٨‎ - ٩‎) used in the Middle East" - see
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arabic_numerals

However, in that case they should be displayed only when the document is in
Arabic language and not for Hindi language.
