.docx file with Content Control

This issue was first brought up by Timur Sattarov on Dec 1, 2015, but then deemed a duplicate of bug 50097:

When reading docx file that contains Word Content Controls, MS Word shows "data from databinding", but Libreoffice shows only the placeholder text.

Note: This is NOT a duplicate of bug 50097 as this issue is about the wrong text being displayed when a .docx file is opened in Writer. Instead of resolving the XML file and displaying the text from the XML file (like Word 2016 does), Write just displays the placeholder text.

This is the Rich Text type content control, modifying meta bug.

Still only the placeholder text is imported in:
