When saving PPT file, LibreOffice does not embed fonts even if "Embed fonts in the document" has been chosen in Properties.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a new Impress presentation.
2. Enter some text.
3. Choose "Properties" from "File" menu.
4. Check "Embed fonts in the document" in the "Font" tab and click "OK".
5. Save the file choosing the PPT file type (confirm the choice in dialog).
6. Close Impress and open the saved file in Microsoft PowerPoint.
7. Check the save options.
The checkbox "Embed fonts in a file" is unchecked in Microsoft PowerPoint.
The checkbox "Embed fonts in a file" should be checked in Microsoft PowerPoint.
User Profile Reset: No
It is also possible to see the unchecked checkbox after reopening the file in Impress itself, but in this case that's also because Impress doesn't detect embedded fonts in PPT files.

I confirm it does not work, but maybe it's a ppt limitation.. I did find this https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/291924
I only found information online, that LibO supports embedding fonts in ODF. And even then, it must conform to the font's meta info: "Allow embedding or not"

That link does explain how to embed fonts to a ppt file with MS Office (versions 2002 and 2003 existed before pptx format was introduced), thus such files do support embedding fonts. For example, http://bcicommtech10.weebly.com/uploads/6/4/0/6/6406570/introduction_to_typography_-_a.ppt is a ppt file with embedded fonts (only characters used in it).

I suppose that the same conditions could be applied to ppt files as well, at least in principle?
