I expect that pasting special, Text only, would only paste the text, without ANY formatting. However, if I copy to the clipboard a cell that has one word colored red, that formatting will be pasted even if "Formats" is unchecked in the Paste Special dialog.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open the attached file
2. Copy cell A1
3. Paste Special into a new file, checking only "Text" (make sure "Formats" is unchecked)
The colored word is pasted
Only the text should be pasted, without any formatting

Copy the cell (note the portion in red)
Reproducible, maybe because the format it's part of the text format not the cell format.

Thank you for helping us make LibreOffice even better for everyone!
I change the title to indicate that "Paste special - Text only, still pastes direct text formatting".
But that looks like NotABug because you indeed paste text, but with it's formatting.
Moreover, you can use Paste Unformatted Text to paste a simple unformatted text.
So I find it appropriate to close.
What I conclude from this bug and Bug 121452 is that we lack good help pages on this, or I didn't find them in https://help.libreoffice.org/6.2/bs/text/scalc/guide/main.html.
