You are right. Ubuntu wiki maintainers have modified parts of moinmoin.
TableOfContents is one of those scripts modified. 

I don't know if it is a moinmoin or ubuntu-wiki specific item, but you
can not have links inside headings on ubuntu wikis. Unfortunately, this
has the side effect that the links will not show up in the

As to anchors, the only way I found to make them in these situations is
to create an anchor right above the links. As an alternative, I have
created tables with all the links in them to jump to paragraphs on my
page and in my wiki. Each paragraph then has a small heading that shows
up in the TableOfContents. The table is used in place of the
TableOfContents in this case.

Creating the anchor above the link sometimes causes problems because it
can double line-spaces between each one.
