AFAIK even-first Word documents never worked properly so i'm not sure this can be called a regression.

as the commit message says:

  A useful improvement would be to detect in Word import filters that the
  first page is even numbered and then invert the mapping of all of the
  page styles, i.e. odd header/footer->left instead of right, and if
  mirrorMargins, pgMar left -> inner instead of outer.
Comment 3 Michael Stahl (allotropia) 2020-05-27 15:55:10 UTC
ah right, if i revert the commit, i get a blank page inserted before the first one, so it was broken before anyway => removing regression
