Seems like we are somehow not scaling the Recently used/Favorite character bar widgets with the rest of the UI--and they incorrectly receive a "fixed" size that is too small.
So here are some steps to reproduce:
1) Windows 10 on ~105dpi 1920x1200 monitor (same for 1920x1080 FHD)
2) set Windows Display Settings -> Scale and Layout -> Advanced scaling settings and set a "Custom scaling setting" of 225%
3) restart Windows to allow the Custom scaling to assert
4) open LibreOffice
5) select the 'Insert Special Character' split button
6) allow it to open showing its "Favorites" and "Recently used" character listbox picker -- note its diminutive size relative to other UI text
7) select the "More Characters..." dialog button
8) allow the dialog to open and note the "Favorites" and "Recently used" character bar "pickers" remain the diminutive size relative to other UI text.

https://gerrit.libreoffice.org/c/core/+/140984 might fix this, can't check it right now, but I'm hopeful

Scaling the UI to 225% the SCD split button, and on the SCD dialog, the 'Favorites' and 'Recently used' button bars are being scaled with the UI.
They are not too large at 100% nor too small at 200%, and scale with the UI as set.
It is a nit, but the "2" integer scale might make the buttons just a little too large as scaled, can scaling here be made fractional at ~1.75? If not, it is much improved as is.
