References in tables kable vs gt

Here's a dummy Rmd file. I have a table which is supposed to contain Bibtex references in one of the columns. I can pass it to knitr::kable(format=markdown). How do I accomplish the same with gt() ?

`` `{r tbl_kable}
df <- tibble::tribble(~n, ~`Reference`,
                       1, "@fenner2012a",
                       2, "@fenner2012a") 
knitr::kable(df, format="markdown")
`` `

`` `{r tbl_gt}
library(gt)
df %>% 
  gt() %>% 
  fmt_markdown(columns = vars(`Reference`)) 
`` `

# References

knitr::kable() renders OK


But gt() passes it through without converting to reference

UPDATE: Found related issue in {gt}
