You're right, it doesn't work.

It's not a big problem, however, all those links and all are
autogenerated so all it takes is a one-for-all change.

Just FYI, this referencing between documents is handled by the "olink"
system within DocBook, and its sitemap files (which tell docbook the
structure and location of files in case they need to be referenced) is
in the docbook/ directory (olinkdb-c.xml file for chunked ("multi-part")
output format and olinkdb-nc.xml for all-in-one output).
