Footnotes in tables are difficult. Even if you leave out org completely
and just look at latex, things are far from simple. There is a FAQ and
an answer on this topic here:


As you can see, things are not simple even if you write in latex. None
of this is implemented in org.

Best advice: don't use footnotes in tables. If you have to use them,
add them in a post-export pass, possibly by formatting the table outside
of org and including it from a separate file.
