Solution:

Named Ranges can be hidden.
These named ranges do not appear in the named ranges manager.

To remove these named ranges, and thus solve the problem, save the document as an XML Workbook, remove the text lines which create the named ranges, then open the XML file, and save as an XSLX file.
