When i set extended help on (in dutch: "Uitgebreide help"), it does not work. It should be working when i go with the mouse cursor over an UI item. I think it does not work any more since the help is in HTML.
Not reproducible for me under Ubuntu 18.04 with
Build ID: 1:6.1.2~rc1-0ubuntu0.18.04.1
CPU threads: 4; OS: Linux 4.15; UI render: default; VCL: gtk3;
Locale: fr-FR (fr_FR.UTF-8); Calc: threaded
Best regards. JBF

I have installed a newer version:
Versie: 18.104.22.168 (x64)
Build ID: 65905a128db06ba48db947242809d14d3f9a93fe
CPU-threads: 4; Besturingssysteem: Windows 10.0; UI-render: standaard;
Locale: nl-BE (nl_BE); Calc: CL
The problem persist. Mayby i was n't clear: i mean de extende help tips.
This is what i do (but ofcourse the items are in Dutch):
I go to Tools > Options > General and i set "Extended help" on.
The i go to File > Print... and in the dialog box i go with my mouse pointer over the textbox of the pages i want to print. Normaly i get then the syntax i can use in a yelow box to print the pages i want. I think this problem is new in version 6, because in version 6 the normal help opens in my browser in stead of an application of the older versions of LO. The first helppage is now: file:///C:/Program%20Files/LibreOffice/help/nl/text/shared/main0108.html?System=WIN&DbPAR=WRITER#bm_id3149178

Here is a screencopy of the extended tooltip I get in then page textbox of the print dialog.
Extended help is offline help that uses offline language pack.
Did you install Dutch using "Help for offline use" from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/ ?
Seems that you're right. I reproduced with 6.1 in Windows.
1. get and install Helppack (any, English US will do)
2. set UI as in Helppack
3. turn on Extended tips (Tools > Options > General)
4. go to File > Print... and mouse hover
Expected: tooltips, like in 5.4

" When switching from internal help viewer to browser for viewing the help, it seems this feature got lost. "
I don't think this can be bisectable...
