For example, typesetting the attached example file and Ctrl + Clicking on the "1" in the resulting PDF in the TeXstudio previewer takes me to the `3` in the source. In real documents the difference can be much larger.

As I could not find anything else (but the issue is still present in an up to date TeX Live), I also asked a question about it on Stack Exchange with some more detail [2].

That was a bug in lua[...]tex on Windows in TeX Live due to my mistake.
Sorry for the inconvenience. Here the bug is fixed. Please wait for the TeX Live 2022.
