It seems when pivot tables has no column fields, LibreOffice Calc does not handle popup buttons correctly. See the attached test document. You can see two similar pivot table with a bit different layout. The second one has no popup button for Name field, but only a simple button.
After refreshing the pivot table popup button is there again.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open attached file in Calc
2. Check the two pivot tables
Missing popup button.
Pivot table should look the same as after a refresh.
