Sorry, but the section range option was intentionally removed in r23535 because of a chicken an egg issue between numbering and text layout. The commit message was:
"Fix chicken and egg issue between numbered lists updates and text layout updates. This patch enforces the ability to update numbers in numbered lists without prior knowledge of text layout. For this we have however to remove several existing numeration ranges: section, page, frame. Only document and story remain."

Due to that chicken and egg issue, the section range option will not be brought back.
