To follow up with the found reason: This one technical report's entry in
JabRef 5.1 has an 'optional fields' tab while other technical reports have
both that field and an 'other fields' tab. The Year is in the other fields
tab and not available to that one document. Strange. Mentioned on the JabRef
developer's list on github.
