The new UI picker dialog may be not only run from Writer or other component, but also straight from Start Center.
1. Open Start Center
2. Help->Show Tip of the Day
3. Show tip 1 ...
4. Run this action now...
In this case, the dialog lacks preview, and also "Apply to" has no component, and should be hidden.

Could it? The Start Center main menu has no View value currently.
Guess the View menu would need to be added, don't imagine it would require any other effect on the SCs static UI. So a preview clip of the SC, and maybe text note describing the SC "customization" is minimal but responds to os/DE theme.

I'm sorry, Stuart, was it posted to the correct report? (Or I might completely not understand it :-))

Possibly a clarification to description of the bug is required.
The UI Picker dialog is *broken* when called from Start Center. It's OK that it does not change Start Center's appearance (the issue is not about using different UI modes in Start Center), but about the dialog itself: it must still show preview bitmaps; it must show the Information text; and it must hide "Apply to" button (because its action is not applicable to current component), and only show "Apply to All" button.

No, it was me and I did not fully engage brain to realize that I'd have to cycle through or reset the TotD counter that Heiko and you have been poking at.
I was thinking just about StartCenter's lack of a View button to launch the dialog, and forgot about the 'Run this action now...' launcher from the TotD.
So, yes the UI Picker could be exposed from the SC (just a little harder at the moment), but as you note a case that needs to handled.
Would just not show the menu item in the start center.
