I believe I understand now that only new, unsaved documents cannot toggle Edit Mode. Was confused by it not appearing.  So let this report be understood as query about whether it should appear that way.

I couldn't find any informations about "Edit Mode" in LO Help. So perhaps there's the need to add some informations to documentation.

I'd say this is NotABug.
But needs to be explained, so I change to Documentation and set New.
There's https://help.libreoffice.org/6.5/en-US/text/shared/02/07070000.html but it's not really well.
