Confirmed

Thank you for reporting the issue. Example of a workaround

---- >8 ----
#+macro: tr @@latex:\relax @@

Ref \\
{{{tr}}} [2]
---- 8< -----

To fix the bug newline (in tables and paragraphs) should be exported as 
"\\\relax" or "\\{}". I do not suggest curly brackets in the beginning 
of line to avoid issues with spurious spaces. Percent character 
(comment) at the end of line should be considered for a fix since it is 
usually used in the opposite way: to suppress newline character and 
spaces at the beginning of next source line.
