A sample DOCX that opens with black text background in Writer

The attachment opens with white background in Word 2016. See discussion at https://ask.libreoffice.org/en/question/238353/.

The document is generated by a third-party service. The text in question indeed has the black text fill; yet, Word does not apply the black background, so there seems to be an interoperability bug here.

True; as in OOo/AOO, that version didn't import any background at all, including legitimate yellow; so it looks like the functionality wasn't yet implemented at that time. However, LibreOffice 3.4.0 OOO340m1 (Build:11) already has the problem.

A sample DOCX resaved in MSO opens fine.

styles.xml w:docDefaults contains

Assuming something here is illegal since all is well after MS Word round-trips it.
