You hit bug #37579 [1]: footnotes in tables and lists get lost. And it 
appears that qandaset are rendered using lists in FO.

I’m afraid there is no straightforward solution. If you absolutely need 
footnotes in qandaset you would have to customize the XSLT template for 
qandaset and avoid using lists or tables to render them. Not exactly 

Of course fixing the bug is the best long-term solution, but that 
requires some development.
