I think you are just seeing `var' have a value after the function call
because it's still there from the global `declare' invocations.

With bash 5.0 alpha, running just the version that's wrapped in a
function, I don't get any value for `var':

    $ echo $BASH_VERSION
    5.0.0(1)-alpha
    $ f() { declare -n ref=var; declare ref=(X); declare -p ref var; }; f
    declare -an ref=([0]="X")
    bash: declare: var: not found
