Pasting bullet lists from Word should be pasted as bullet lists
It looks like copy & paste from Word with bullet points comes through to Manuscripts as paragraphs with a "·" as a prefix.
Example .docx attached to assist in working this out.
If solution involves special casing paragraphs with a "·" (in case Word's exported HTML makes no mention of it being a list in any other way) bear in mind that there can be also other bullet markers. But hopefully it won't come to that (I believe Manuscripts 1.x for Mac also handles this case correctly based on Word's HTML clipboard type, rather than the RTF clipboard type).
