With dragging the rectangle you move the anchor of the rectangle. In this case the anchor moves to the last paragraph of the previous page. But the vertical position of the rectangle is not adapted correctly. Look into the Position&Size dialog. If you correct the vertical position to a reasonable value, the rectangle will appear on the previous page.
The problem is not in the size of the shape. If the rectangle has a smaller height, I see the error in the same way.
Workaround: Do not drag the rectangle but keep the anchor and set the rectangle position in the Position&Size dialog. Dragging an object in Writer has in addition the effect, that position is forced to "from top" or "from left". Thus any special position setting like "top to entire page" or "center to right page border" is lost. I avoid using dragging an object but use always the Position&Size dialog. To move an object, do not drag the object but its anchor.
Nevertheless it is an error in the way dragging is handled.

Adding bibisectrequest. In previous version the shape jumped to the previous page (but visible). Without regression keyword..
This seems to have begun at the below commit.

tdf#112443 disable off-page content positioning
I can confirm the problem. The Anchor jumps the the previous page when moving the image and thus my "disable off page positioning" patch removes the content of the rectangle. I'll look into it! I think I have to add an exception for this kind of anchor. Maybe really similar to https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=120839

A polite ping to Patrick Jaap:
Is this bug fixed? if so, could you please close it as RESOLVED FIXED ? Otherwise, Could you please explain what's missing?
In master, the rectangle does not disappear/becomes invisible any more.
There is still the "jump" to the other page, but this is independent from my regression.
