Same issue in DOC format. I didn't want to create a separate bug report right away, that can be done whenever, eg. if the DOCX part is resolved separately.

Bug #127736 is about this too, plus Line Spacing is not applied either (unlike in Word).
Comment 5 Justin L 2020-03-27 12:34:08 UTC
This looks simply like a layout difference between the two programs. I didn't see any compat settings related to this. (The closest is automargin - but that is only handled on import).

So likely if this is worth fixing, it would require a new compat layout setting. It seems to be related to EatSpacing() - which only eats lower spacing and not upper spacing.

Another option would be to disable dynamic header sizing in this situation - although that might have other implications...
