I  do them for myself  to keep track of what happens in each chapter, then change them to just numbers before I release.

That's a good idea. I do use the chapter space pre-finalization for some notes. On vellum, which I draft in, you can just go down the side and double click + delete and it's back to numbers.

I never title chapters when I'm writing fiction because I don't want to give anything away. For the same reason, I tend not to take much notice of chapter headings myself when I'm reading a novel.

But I always do for non-fiction.  They are an important way to help readers find the information they want.
