Some words are written with hyphen: state-of-the-art, majority is not. With Hunspell, we have two possibilities: treat hyphen as part of the word, or as brake point so spell checker is checking every part of such compounded word separately.
Let's say we choose first approach because suggestion mechanism is working better this way. Now, hyphen is nothing more then character like every other letter in alphabet. This is the way English dictionary is treating apostrophe.
If automatic hyphenation is enabled, hyphenated words are not marked as misspelled when hyphenated at the very end of a line, but if I put hyphen manually, words is flagged as misspelled.
Think that there should not be difference between automatic and manual hyphenation. If hyphen causes word to break into another line, spell checking should be preformed like word is not hyphenated at all.
Recapitulation: 'com-puter' is not flagged as misspelled if hyphenated like this automatically, but it is if hyphen is inserted manually.
Confirmed by manual hyphenation Ctrl+hyphen.

Actually, I noticed it when plain hyphen inserted at the end of the line, not if CTRL + hyphen is used. Think that manually inserted soft hyphen works as expected. To me it happens with regular hyphen that causes word hyphenation. For what I can see, automatic hyphenation is not using soft hyphen, at least it's not marked as one with gray background.

Hm... Seams that spell-checking works when manual hyphenation added with LibreOffice 18.104.22.168. I guess this is fixed then?
One more thing can be improved: accepting correction for manually hyphenated word strips hyphen when accepting suggestion. Maybe Hunspell's fault? Can LibreOffice interfere and and hyphen? Should I open new bug report about this?

Yes, please open a new report. If you suspect Hunspell, you can report it to them: https://github.com/hunspell/hunspell/issues
I'll try ask Hunepll folks about this, but it may also be that LO strips hyphen and passes word to Husnpell without hyphen so no hyphen in - no hyphen out...
