There must not be attribute draw:fill="bitmap" nor the other associated 
draw:fill... at all. The attribute style:repeat is invalid too.

In ODF 1.2 only the attribute fo:background-color (20.175) and the child 
element <style:background-image> (17.3) are allowed in 
<style:header-footer-properties> (17.5).

In ODF 1.2 extended such attributes would be allowed, but must have a 
private namespace like 'loext'.

Try validator https://odfvalidator.org/
and look into spec 

Another example of implementing things without considering how they are 
correctly reflected in fill format.

Kind regards
