When attempting to merge row cells in Calc only the Merge & Center function occurs.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. select several row cells
2. select Merge cells in the Format/Merge option
3. either start entering text in selected merge cell or go back to Format/Merge to see what is set.
Entered text is centered in the merged cell. Format/Merge shows Merge and Center is selected.
Text entered should not be centered in the merged cells.
User Profile Reset: No
Text entered should fill the merged cell and wrap if wrap is selected.

Thanks for reporting the problem, but your version is EOL, can you test it with a newer version of LibreOffice 5.4.6
This happen with 6.0.2 version, but why this behaviour should change, it's the usual having centered the merged cells content. And it's only one click change the align.
So clearly not a bug, as much a request for enhancemente, about what I'm disagree.
point taken, thanks for the explanation, and so for me also not a bug
Menu Format-Merge Cells has "Merge Cells" and "Merge and Center Cells".
Both work as expected. "Merge Cells" is not centered.
It's true that even "Merge Cells" command turns on "Merge and Center Cells" icon.
So I'll rephrase the bug, change th4 title and confirm:
1. Via Customize Toolbar add icon with command Format-Merge Cells (in addition to existing "Merge and Center Cells" icon)
2. select two row cells with some text
3a. select Format-Merge Cells-Merge Cells OR
3b click "Merge Cells" icon
Actual Results: Text is properly merged and aligned, but "Merge and Center Cells" is pressed
Expected Results: "Merge and Center Cells" should not be pressed and "Merge Cells" icon should be pressed.
I tested with master 61+ but please test again.
Menu issue started in LO 3.3 when Menu Format-Merge Cells was created.
But icon issue inherited from OO 3.3.
