Default Microsoft Word mystery

I'm working on a book, using Microsoft Word. I'll be self-publishing, through Amazon KDP and (probably) some other print-on-demand sources as well. I expect to publish a paperback version, and e-book versions for both Kindle and Nook (EPUB).

Word is adequate for formatting the print version, which will be exported to PDF before uploading for print. For the print version, I want to follow good practice and have new chapters always start on an odd-numbered (right-hand) page. That's not a problem -- Word offers that as an option when entering section breaks.

Where I'm encountering problems is in setting up the separate file for the e-books. For e-books, I don't need or want headers or footers, so I need to strip those out. My understanding is that chapter breaks should be made using section breaks rather than page breaks, BUT ...

I can't seem to get rid of the "Odd Page" section breaks and replace them with "Next Page" section breaks.

For what it's worth, I'm using Word 2016.

Has anyone ever encountered this issue? Can anyone offer suggestions as to how to fix it?
