Following is a response from DHS staff member, Tom Pullum:

If you are unable to match an indicator in a final report, please tell us which table in which report. The tables have details in the titles and footnotes that are crucial. There may have been a difference in the definition of the indicators. The definition of the PNC indicator changed from DHS-6 to DHS-7. Also, the tables in the reports use the sampling weights.

We recently posted a Stata program ( 6242&&srch=postnatal+care#msg_26242) that reproduces the tables on postnatal care for the mother and newborn in the 2017-18 Bangladesh survey. You should be able to adapt it to the 2019 Liberia survey. The GitHub program for PNC (in the chapter on reproductive health, er/Chap09_RH) may use the earlier definition.
