Seems it lose the language for date format, in my case it returns to my default Spanish.

Same thing here.
French locale, and dates are shown in English Caribean locale when opening files saved with LO (5.4.1 or 5.4.2, Windows 7 pro X64 and MacOSX 11) in Microsoft Excel.
For me importance should have been major, as we cannot exchange files containing dates with Microsoft Excel users.
