The UpdateDocVariablesBeforePrint Property in DOCX and RTF Documents

The UpdateDocVariablesBeforePrint setting is stored in the document in OpenXml (.docx) format. Microsoft Word preserves this setting when a document is saved, but ignores it. The setting specifies whether to update the DOCVARIABLE field before the document is printed/exported, or before the field is copied. The option also affects the DOCVARIABLE fields update when RTF content is imported.
