Description:
Related to all of that "Tracking Changes" things:
* https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=125909
* https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=130840
* https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=130832

For XLSX format

If I do:
* Save Document
* Activate Tracking
* (Optionally Save, Calc does not require it)
* Close the workbook

and then:
* I mount the archive
* `cd` inside
* Run `grep -TrinP 'track|history'`.

Actual:
* I get zero results
* When I open the file, the functionality is no longer enabled

From IRC:
Q: Any idea what's "tracking changes" flag called that's stored in the workbook format?
R: it depends on what is "workbook format"?
Q: xlsx
R: keepChangeHistory, trackRevisions, preserveHistory

Actual Results:
 

Expected Results:
 


Reproducible: Always

Works fine here. "Record changes" is still ticked after your last given step for me with xlsx. This is with a fresh file created in LibreOffice.

Possibly a Snap-only issue again? Quick way to test would be an appimage: https://libreoffice.soluzioniopen.com/

How can that possibly be, since the application logic is essentially the same? 😕

In any case, it would take me a while before having access to re-test this one.
