The problem is, that the drawings are VML drawings. VML is an outdated drawing format and discontinued in MS Office. Only Word has still some support for VML. If the document in converted in MS Word to a current version, the results renders fine in LibreOffice.

For me it is a WONTFIX. But perhaps someone is interested in improving the VML import filter.
