When icons in LO are set to show in menus (in Settings): menu commands without icons do not align to the start of menu commands (with icons) text, but to their icons.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set icons to show in the menus.
See attached screenshot.
Text of menu commands should be aligned to same width, irrelevant if icons are present or not.

Menus with icons on macOS
This is how the platform does it. LibreOffice menus are native on the Mac. It’s the same as in e.g. Safari: go to File > Share, and you’ll see the same alignment. In macOS, the leftmost column in the menus is always reserved to checkmarks and bullets.

Well I can confirm the behaviour, but whether or not it is a bug I can't say :
Apps that behave like LO :
Apps that don't behave like LO (and align the text entry irrespective of the presence/absence of the icon) :
Most of the Apple own apps either don't show any icons next to the menu entry, or else behave like Firefox, TB, Adium, Chrome and LO. (Comparison made with Apple Pages, Numbers, Keynote, Mail).
Adolfo proofed that we follow the system standard, which is ugly and makes reading difficult, I totally agree. But our default setting for menu icons is "Automatic" meaning off like macOS apps look like by default.
