This is an exerpt from Looker documentation:

 

Table calculations can only reference fields that are included in the query of a Look or tile. This means that if you remove a field from a Look or tile’s query but a table calculation still uses that field, you’ll get a new content validation error.

 

https://docs.looker.com/data-modeling/getting-started/look-validation

And then another section:

 

It does list custom fields there so I think this may have been either a bug or an incorrect information in the docs
