in LO Writer, the drop down in the sidebar and the toolbar are static. The don't change as styles get used in the document. Most noticeable is that the Default style can only be chosen by using the "styles and formatting" option in the sidebar or by suing the Styles menu item.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. open writer
if the default style is what is set in the opening template, it appears in the drop down box. However, it does not appear in the list when one clicks on the down arrow.
should work as in older versions.

I load up one of the LibrOffice user guides, which have plenty of custom styles.
Both the toolbar and sidebar Styles drop down show a limited set of styles, and both have a 'more styles' entry which if you select then lists all of the styles in the document.
So, I'm not sure what it is that is the problem you are reporting.

I agree. Elmar, can you perhaps add a screenshot, that shows the problem. You also mentioned, that the problem not appears in older versions. What version you are thinking of?

Bisected with win 6.2 repo to https://cgit.freedesktop.org/libreoffice/core/commit/?id=d70f53a8269be31f0412926afa5ba826faed6633
tdf#100894 freeze when editing calc file with bazillions of cond formatting
This does not fix the root cause of this problem, which is simply that
the document has a bazillion style sheets. Either the program which
exported this document is broken, or our importer is not correctly de-
duplicating the imported stylesheets.
