Repro 6.3+. Inherited. 
Cause is that LO doesn't import Format-Page-Sheet-Comments for XLSX. 
This is specific to XLSX, XLS fileopen and end of sheet print is fine in general. 

Note: in XLS will LO print both visible comments on page and on the following sheet. If print on page is not needed, comments can be turned off with View-Comments. I consider that behavior logical and fine.

Further to a recent email from the team (ref: "To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.")

I have done further testing with a basic Calc-produced .xls and .xlsx file which was then opened in MS Excel. As per the original bug, the comments saved within the Calc produced .xls files are respected by MS Excel only in so far as they print using "Displayed at end of sheet", but are not respected when "As displayed in sheet". I conclude there is something anomalous between how Calc saves an .xls file versus how Excel does.

I have tried the same test using .xlsx file and I can report that with my basic test, the .xlsx file which was originated in Calc does indeed print properly when loaded by Excel.

I can supply the attachments if so required. (currently using Version: 6.3.2.2 (x64) Build ID: 98b30e735bda24bc04ab42594c85f7fd8be07b9c)
