Using chapter numbers instead of chapter titles for cross-reference purposes seems quite brittle (as you're pointing out) and undesirable. And that constancy of all chapter (and section numbers) going from the 2019 Unpriv and Priv specs to the 2021 specs has already been broken.
If it was me, I would say that the certification test questions should use chapter (and section) titles (and avoid chapter/section numbers). Otherwise one way or another I would bet that their spec cross-references aren't going to survive 100% over the next 5-10 years.
