It is a bug.  An xref to an orderlist listitem uses the
gentext system to get the link text.  The gentext for
'listitem' in the xref context is "%n", which is filled
in using the mode 'label.markup'.

But the template
<xsl:template match="orderedlist/listitem" mode="label.markup">
in common/labels.xsl does not take into account the
'continues' attribute.  It should make a call
to the 'orderedlist-starting-number' template
the way the orderedlist template does in lists.xsl.

You could file a bug report on the SourceForge site
to get it fixed at some point.
