Automatic formatting of headings in customized template for report writer?

I’m trying to generate a report with report writer using my own report template. I already managed to install our company’s MS Word doc-Template into report writer by following the hints under

However, whenever I add diagrams respectively diagram items to my report, a “default” style is applied to all heading paragraphs being generated, no numbering or indentation is applied. The built-in report templates behave differently here, all headings are numbered and indented properly.

Therefore my question:
Is there a way to achieve proper indentation and automatic numbering of headings even in custom report templates?
Alternatively: Is it possible to customize the layout of the build-in report templates?
