In https://help.libreoffice.org/7.2/en-US/text/shared/01/01020000.html, it is written:
"If a document was created using a template that cannot be found a dialog is shown that asks you how to proceed next time the document is opened.
To break the link between the document and the missing template, click No, otherwise LibreOffice will look for the template the next time you open the document."
This does not seem to be the actual behavior in 7.2
Tested as follows:
1. Make a template.
2. Open document based on that template, save, and close.
3. Delete template.
4. Open document again.
(also, after restarting application)
Result: No dialog boxes asking what to do.
Question: Bug? or should these two paragraphs be removed from the help page?

Don't get the dialog in 6.4 either. But I'm not aware of any change nor I would agree with dropping the warning of a missing template. Question to QA, whether this is a regression.
Double-check that the delete function from the context menu works. Didn't in my case, maybe, be hard delete with file browser makes no difference OTOH.
No error message with 18.104.22.168.
- File-Properties-General shows (deleted) template name for document
- Pathname for template in file’s metadata accurately reflects the path/filename for the deleted template, and I confirmed that template mentioned in document’s metadata was not in the specified directory.
- Using "delete" from context menu actually deletes file
