Please find the reduced code below.

If you compile this with pdflatex you get an arrow to the 1 and 2. If
you use xelatex instead the arrows are above the topmost V, which is wrong.

With my naive understanding of everything I would say it is the xelatex
part since the other parts are used by pdflatex as well. But maybe this
is wrong and there are special parts of the mentioned packages for
xelatex vs. pdflatex.

Thanks for your help!
