I have tried the software “LibreOffice Writer 18.104.22.168-821.3” (Build-ID: 20(Build:2)) out again.
I would find it helpful if context menus will be offered for entries in the list controls of the pivot table setup dialogue.
What exactly do you mean with "setup dialog" (Pivot Table Layout?) and what commands are you looking for to be shown in the context menu?
(In reply to Heiko Tietze from comment #1)
It seems that you prefer to refer to “Pivot Table Layout”.
I would find entries like the following helpful in a corresponding context menu.
* Add fields
* Delete fields
* Adjust filter criteria
Would you like to support any more configuration access possibilities besides keyboard shortcuts and the user interface “drag and drop”?
> * Add fields
I suppose you're thinking to right-click at the Available Fields list and want to add columns from the spreadsheet, right? If you talk about adding the available field to row/column/data, as an alternative to drag 'n drop, it could be an accessibility enhancement.
> * Delete fields
Again, if you have Available Fields in mind you can just ignore the entry. In case of Column/Row/Data Field the context menu could return the dropped entry back to the available fields. A lot of effort for not much benefit except accessibility.
> * Adjust filter criteria
You want to filter before creating the chart? This function is not related to the fields and therefore not suited for a context menu

Such a view can be useful.

Thanks that you can think also in this direction.

Filter criteria will occasionally be adjusted after the creation of a pivot table, won't they?

I suggest to reconsider this view.
In principle it's a good idea from user's perspective to have a useful context menu also in list fields. But if this enhancement will be considered, also other lists e.g. in the chart dialogs should be enhanced with a context menu to give the user a consistent user experience.
Someone must define the useful commands per list.
For accessibility it makes sense to have alternatives to the drag 'n drop actions. So let's add a context menu to Field with the actions Add to Row, Add to Column, Add to Values and the respective menu at these lists with "Remove".
