Source file

1. Open attached ODG
2. Ctrl-A to select all
3. File - Export - Jpeg (tick Selection!!)
4. Default settings, OK

The bottom line in the bottom box is cropped away.

Not yet seen in 3.6.7.
Already in 4.3.0 (tested on Win)

Workaround is to export the full page instead of selection in some lossless format like PNG, edit in GIMP to crop how you like and export as JPEG.

Buovjaga, I tried export only selection from your file into JPG and into PNG in LibreOffice on Windows 10. I got the same result for these both.
Bottom line of bottom shape don't crop. There is line. Just border of image very close from this line.

Increase scale of image and look at bottom part of image (You can use GIMP).

My opinion -> WFM

Maybe it is not cropping, but something changed in the JPEG compression? Earlier the bottom line was clear, but now it looks pale, like only antialiasing.

I did take another look at 3.6.7 and it is not full black in it either. 3.3.0 looks sharpest.

Repro in, fixed in

Bibisected the fix to Armin's a9f6d98859321e1b9029acc0c6e9347f4c1cf3b7 with linux-64-7.3 repo.

Not marking as a duplicate as bug 126319 was a 6.2 regression.

Thanks Buovjaga, Armin et al.!
