people offtentimes have documents with the same name in different directories...
also, people will offtentimes wonder where on earth a certain document is located...
it would be great to see the path info when looking at the recent documents list.. (when the mouse goes over the given file)
removable media and/or inaccessible files could be indicated, too...

My take: show it as tooltip... Let's the UX team decide
Can not confirm. On Windows build of 18.104.22.168 and master/6.3.0 both the Start Center -> Recent Files thumbnail views, and the per module File -> Recent Documents list *already* display full path in a tooltip on mouseover!
Already => WFM
Closing as RESOLVED NOTABUG
I'm reopening this bug because I think the bug opener means the recent document list in the LibreOffice UI ('Open' toolbar command, etc.) and not in the Start Center.
I don't know if it's technically possible to have a tooltip on these recent document entries, but I'm definitively in favour of this idea after a latency time of some seconds to not disturb the normal mouse cursor path.

Moving to NEW then...
Huh? On Windows builds...
The MRU list (File -> Recent Documents) already includes the file extensions (if any) in its entry.
Also, its pop-up tooltip includes full path and file name there as well.
Pretty clear => WFM on Windows builds.
Folks seeing different on other builds?
oh, wait a second, it works in GTK2 and GEN but not in GTK3, thus, this is a GTK3 only bug...
@Caolán, I thought you could be interested in this issue...

https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/gtk/issues/785 no way to set tooltip on a menu item via GMenuModel
I resolved the issue in Lollypop by using a custom menu builder:
Allows me to add more custom attributes.
