These are not bugs.

Your first problem is caused by the fact that you copied an "item" tag without the surrounding description list.
This is simply bad practice; we cannot do much about this
kind of thing (there are thousands of ways to misuse
structure; it is difficult to prevent the user from doing so).

The second problem is a bit more annoying, but again due to "bad practice": you are strongly discouraged from using footnotes, citations, etc. in section titles.  Indeed, section titles also appear in the table of contents and as headers and footers of your pages: you do not want the footnotes to be duplicated there.
See "The Jolly Writer" section 7.4.1 for more information how to force the use of footnotes if you really want to insist.

- by copy/poasting an element of a definition list
screenshot on "aj_dalembert.png" and original file "SE.tm" and fil from where the content of the footnote has been copypasted : "mathematiciens.tm"

- by trying to insert a footnote at a word from a subsection : file "series.tm", bottom of the unique page 1
