How shall rtf2latex2e know that YOU want it THIS way?
The heading conversion above is default setting, but it can be changed.
In the subfolder ./pref there is a file r2l-map in which it is specified
how headings are to be converted.

What are the rtf2latex2e calling parameters?
Maybe you should call rtf2latex2e with the option -p1, not higher, see

That is a big difference. rtf2latex2e is aimed at Word's rtf output.
Rtf from OOo and LibreOffice is broken.

Hope that helps,
