The spell checker doesn't mark words wrong spelled if there is a number written at beginning/ end or somewhere within
Steps to Reproduce:
1. open the attached file
2. Look at the red lining
I would expect they spell checker being trigger, bit to tolerant for my taste

The Hunspell expert. Feature or bug. Looks like a bug to me.
Outside the scope of this, I would also expect a sensible suggestion for "He^llo" But noticing more spell checkers having trouble with that.
The desired behavior can be set from the user in Tools > Options > Language Settings > Writing Aids.
Option "Check words with numbers" in section "Options".

Thanks for that :-). So not a developers 'fault'. Let's carry on the next station. UX. As this is of course not something I don't let go easily. Even though there appears to be not 'common' setting for this.
I'm still a proponent for dialog to configure LibreOffice. At for 'more' common disputable settings.. to make it more accessible and raise awareness of the existence. The scattered all over the place; buried deep within dialogs. It's common that Benjamins like me are not able to find it; realize it's a setting (and call it a bug)
* Markdown auto-correct
* Check words with numbers exception
* Autocomplete [Someone decided to disable it by default]
* Highlighting or shading
* Tabbed or Toolbar
* Grid enable/disable
Maybe even show it at first launch. As there is already a debate about a configuration 'wizard' related to the UI (toolbar/tabbed)
The options under writing aids are also relevant for the auto spellcheck function. That means, it needs a central place for configuration.
We have a big button in the spell checking dialog to get to these options (without any distraction).
Words with 1numbers at the beginning are easy to spot; and you may understand why a corrections is not done without reading the documentation.
Putting all together I think every additional feedback has not much benefit on usability but clutters the UI and performs worse than today => NAB
