Example of the list

I searched through google and here on superuser but cannot find how I can make it or if it's even possible to happen. Any reference links or videos are welcome.

This requires a bit of work, but you could replace your regular numbered lists with Sequence fields (see here for a tutorial), and use the \c switch (explained here) to repeat an already-used list number.

(There is also the ListNum field available for custom lists, as reference here, but as far as I can tell, that doesn't allow for repeating list numbers.)
