The problem that I see is that the image on the first page is not in a centred paragraph by itself. DOCX looks OK - so for some reason DOC is exporting and losing a carriage return - perhaps related to the caption?
Comment 3 Justin L 2021-04-03 17:11:43 UTC
The strange thing is that the other images are the same - centered, with a caption, followed by a heading. Yet the other ones are fine.

With a bit of monkeying around in Word 2003, I see this bookmark/field/whatever "{ XE "template:deleting" }" at the beginning of this heading (Deleting a template folder). You can see the "blue line" before the text if you look closely. I'm not sure what this is, or how you can view/edit it in LO.

I can also confirm in bibisect43all that this has happened since the earliest times.
