References in blockquote invisible outside it; reflist outside blockquote invisible inside it

Description

Contradictory warnings at [[Waltzing Matilda#Lyrics]]

Where references are included inside a <blockquote> and there is a reflist outside the block quote the two are invisible to each other.

This leads to the confusing and contradictory messages seen in the attached screenshot from [[Waltzing Matilda#Lyrics]] where there is a warning that there are group N references on the page but that they will not appear without a {{reflist|Group=N}} template, immediately followed by a note produced by a {{reflist|Group=N}} template that there are no references with the group N on this page.

The first warning is inside the blockquote, the second is outside it.

This is possibly related to bug 51289, bug 50474 and/or bug 50749

Also, as seen by editing https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?oldid=596381198 you cannot re-use any references that are within a blockquote.

All of this of course includes <blockquote>s created through the {{quotation}} template or other similar templates.

Column Prototype
This is a very early prototype of a persistent column. It is not expected to work yet, and leaving it open will activate other new features which will break things. Press "\" (backslash) on your keyboard to close it now.
