PPTX file (PowerPoint 2007) with left/right arrow shape + text in that shape
If I create in Impress a left- or right-pointing arrow shape and add text to it, it is nicely vertically and horizontally centered.
If I import such a shape via PPTX file (see attachment, created with PowerPoint 2007), the right-pointing arrow shape looks fine - but the left-pointing arrow shape has the text too far up up and left.
Looking closer at the issue, the difference seems to be what is regarded as "Top".
LO looks at the top-left corner of the "<=" bounding box, PP seems to take the upper coordinate of "===", ignoring that "<" extends further up.
For "===>" arrows, both take the same "y" value.

Bibisected to range
The commit that stands out from the crowd to me is https://gerrit.libreoffice.org/plugins/gitiles/core/+/44b98b588c51c976c38b08844f7e09d236518e32%5E%21/
n742593: Adding checks before using textbox sizes.
The reason is, that the left arrow is not really a left arrow but a mirrored right arrow.
Please try it again with a current daily. The problem should be fixed with my recent commit https://cgit.freedesktop.org/libreoffice/core/commit/?id=7830a9d42926a9c5265230d42fce4a4858b303c1
It is not totally fixed, see bug 127785. I see the problem of wrong text position too in pure "non-primitive" custom-shapes, where no import filter are involved. So the error in this bug might be no import filter error at all. First bug 127785 has to be fixed before further investigation in regard to import filter makes sense.
