Libreoffice Calc gives a correct preview of CSV files even when the region setting for comma symbols is not matched by the CSV numbers contained within (in the locale and in the Libreoffice settings).
After importing, the commas are lost if they do not match the one set in the locale or Libreoffice.
Some history of the bug is here:
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Save a CSV file with numbers containing commas that do not match the Libreoffice or locale settings for comma symbols (possibly: mix some text values in that column)
2. open the file with calc, look at the preview in the text import dialog
3. Look at the final results in Calc, commas are gone
Commas are gone in Calc after text import
Correct behavior should be: the preview in the text import dialog should reflect how the file is really going to be imported, based on libreoffice or locale settings.

Thank for reporting the bug, but your version of LO is EOL
Upgrade to the latest version and try again.
If your not agree you can reopen the bugreport
I reopened the bug. It still happens in Libreoffice 126.96.36.199.
You can't confirm your own bugs. Moving it back to UNCONFIRMED until someone
else confirms it.
Bug 39829 covers also the preview aspect of this.
For now, try this: in the preview window, click the column type (Standard) of the problematic column (I assume Coefficients) and set the Column type from the dropdown to US English.
The problem you describe is probably due to the confusion of thousands separators.

Apologies, I did the previous change accidentally in ninja mode, so no email notification was sent
