When the "Standard" button is pressed, most attributes are removed (and go back to inheriting from the parent style), but some are not, including numbering style (Outline and Numbering) and some attributes from borders.
The numbering style case is particularly problematic, because the UI does not distinguish between "don't do anything" and "no numbering". If you attach a numbering style to a paragraph style and later go back and choose "None", it will mean "no numbering", so subsequent applications of that style forcibly remove all numbering styles as well as manual formatted numbering. I haven't yet checked whether this problem has been reported.
The fact that the button is broken was mentioned in bug 42763 comment 4, but I couldn't find a bug report.
Bug 89826 is related, but this needs to be fixed regardless.
I suspect that this problem has existed since before version 3.3, but for now I'll set the version to 126.96.36.199.
Steps to Reproduce:
Navigate to relevant tab for some style attribute for some style and press "Standard" then "Apply" or "Okay".
All attributes for the tab removed.
Some attributes fail to be removed.

I could not reproduce the Numbering style issue, but from Borders I noticed Width does not reset. Yet, that was the *only* one that misbehaved.
The style I modified was picked randomly: Footer paragraph style.

I think shadows was one of the other properties on the borders tab that refused to reset, in the same manner as numbering.
But it sounds like I need to check more thoroughly if you couldn't reproduce the problem with numbering.

Shadow resets fine for me.
