Probably it's not a big problem since appearly it has no negative effect, but it's visually unpleasant and perhaps it can create real problem in more complex documents.

Writer doesn't have the concept of a continuous break, so it has to emulate that with sections. Word combines page styles and section settings into a single concept, but writer has them distinctly separated. Since the emulation is working without a negative effect, I'm marking this as won't fix. This is an EXTREMELY tricky area to deal with and has lots of bug reports.  (see bug 81426 for example.)
