Bookmarks can relate to regular audio tracks or podcasts.

But the references are not adapted in bookmarks.dat, neither for regular audio tracks nor for podcast files:
* when using File -> Library -> Relink Music File Paths...
* when using Preferences -> tab 'Library' -> section 'podcasts' -> 'naming template' -> button 'Reorganise...'

As a result, bookmarks become unusable for files that have been moved.
And since bookmarks.dat isn't plain text, it isn't editable, so there's no workaround.

I suggest that, when the two features mentioned above perform path replacements in the library / playlists / Subscriptions.dat,
they carry out the replacements in bookmarks.dat in the same stride.
