A writer file with form fields can not be exported anymore into an PDF file with editable form fields.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. create a writer file with form fields
2. Enable the checkbox "create PDF form" in the PDF export options
3. try to export the Writer file
No PDF file with form fields occurs. Just a standard File
The exported File should be a PDF form with editable Form fieds
User Profile Reset: Yes
I think the bug occurs after updating Libre Office
No reproduction with:

Works as expected - after exporting to PDF, the editable fields are present in PDF file.

I believe this is a duplicate of bug 127493
Could you please try again with LibreOffice 6.4 ?
*** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of bug 127493 ***
I am using libre office still from the arch linux repository. So i think i will wait until libre office 6.4 became "still".
