If you're referring to black arrows on top, it's missing Wingdings 224 Symbols. Not sure if it belongs to Wingdings 3. Not dependent on color. Repro 6.3+.
DOCX probably also suffers from Bug 100751 that can be seen with green arrows.
This happens only when the shape is on a canvas. The shape alone or the text copied to the document body retains the arrows correctly.

I believe Impress suffers from a similar issue. When trying to convert the attached PPTX to PDF, the arrow is generated as a square. When installing the ttf-mscorefonts-installer, it actually puts in a moon character.

This bug - or what I take to be this same bug - is present in Impress 220.127.116.11.
To reproduce the problem do the following. Create a PPTX file. Therein type '-->'. PowerPoint will replace that string with a single arrow symbol. Load the file in Impress. See that the symbol has become a square.
Here is why this problem matters. It is one of many small things that makes importing from PowerPoint, or even (as one might well do on Linux) just using PowerPoint to display PowerPoint files, a gamble/extra work.
The best resolution would be for Impress to render the symbol just as PowerPoint does. Yet, the second best, of inserting a _similar_ character, would be welcome.
