If you have a look at the page Sidebar they are different between writer, (calc), and impress/draw.

writer
=======
There are two sections the Format and Styles section (in addition there is Header and Footer section)
- In draw/impress there is Insert Image which could be also there in writer (watermark)


draw/impress
============
There is only one Page section.
- Width and Height stuff is missing, but can be useful at least for draw where you can have special print sizes. I would recommend to add the two entries
- for consistency I would recommend to have in draw/impress also an Styles section with 
- Background
- Insert Image
- Master Page


calc
====
there is no page sidebar

In draw an grid configure section could be useful in the page sidebar.

It's called "content panel" and allows to show content from different contexts. See also https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Design/Guidelines/SideBar

Don't think we should aim for consistency over module's sidebars. The insert image function is easy to reach and not crucial in Writer.

Hm, maybe.

See above.

What is the need for a "page" sidebar in Calc?

No further input, so let's resolve as WFM. "Consistency" of sidebars across modules is not necessary.
