I set New. 
You forgot to write password for D4 and for the sheet.

Calc not only doesn't read XLSX option "Allow Users to Edit Ranges"  with password, but it has no similar feature, which should be created first. 
OTOH, XLSX with the option but with no password can have cells edited in LO. Cell Protection status is still shown as Protected.
