It isn't a bug. That was always. 

This can be an enhancement like "Always use Chart Wizard for creating a chart in Writer"

Other opinions?

Actual behaviour is inconsistent with LO help: "Choose Insert - Chart. You see a chart preview and the Chart Wizard. Follow the instructions in the Chart Wizard to create the chart." https://help.libreoffice.org/7.0/en-GB/text/shared/guide/chart_insert.html?&DbPAR=CHART&System=WIN

You should read more attentively:
---
Chart in a Writer text document
In a Writer document, you can insert a chart obtained from the data of a Writer table.

>>>Click inside the Writer table.<<<
Choose Insert - Chart.
You see a chart preview and the Chart Wizard.
---

And read ALL that help page from start, please. There are just TWO methods for chart inserting.

So I change this to enh

Let's just change the workflow and always start the wizard.
