Untranslated post object and page link fields do not show on the back-end of the duplicated post despite the fact that the post is associated with the correct value for the post object and page link custom fields in the database.
Please note that this is not a bug and it does not affect the functionality. All the textual elements will be presented in the front-end correctly even though they are not displayed on the back-end.
