I assume you want footnotes, not footers, even if the subject says so.

I think the core of the issue is the chicken-and-egg problem with
footnotes. If you have a text to lay out, and you have a sizable
footnote, that means part of the text that was originally on page 1 now
moves to page 2. It may happen that the moved text contained the
footnote anchor, which means that the footnote also moves to page 2. But
then there is unused space on page 1, so the text is moved back, and so
on and so on.

git grep oscillation sw/source/core/

Gives you plenty of such examples. Limiting the maximum height of
footnotes make this problem happening in practice much less frequently.
