Koma-script Book Figure/Table numbering.

I have searched the archives and googled for information, but I found
nothing useful. If I have missed something, please be gentle with me! ;-)
My development setup:
* Linux Mint 19.3 64 bit.
* Lyx 2.2.4 (From the Mint distro, not downloaded.)
* Koma Script Book document class.
I have a book in progress, hopefully to be published "soon". I wrote my
previous book in ASCIIDoctor-pdf and it was a total nightmare when the
publisher wanted a re-jig of the chapters as the table/figure/listings
all had to be manually renumbered. I have some experience with pure
LaTeX, but I much prefer Lyx, I get more done that way.
The publisher requires me to number tables and figures as "n.n.n". I
have set my Document's modules to "Number tables by section", "Number
figures by section".
The book is split into parts and each chapter is a separate file
inserted as child documents with include type = "include". Each child
has the same options as the master - I have checked.
When I preview a child document, the generated PDF is correctly
numbering the tables and figures as "n.n.n: Caption_text", however, when
I preview the master document the tables and figures are now "n.n.n.:
Caption_text" -- there's an extra dot before the colon.
This problem does not occur if the Standard Book document class is used.
However, I do prefer the Koma-script one.
The problem also doesn't occur if I don't use parts. Unfortunately, I
I have a test case if anyone is interested, but I doubt I'd be allowed
to attach it to a list posting, especially as a new subscriber.
Has anyone seen this problem before? If so, did you find a solution?
Thanks in advance.
