Naming of the toolbars is different. In Draw/Impress it is named "Line and Filling" and in Writer/Calc "Drawing Object Properties". Both are context sensitive. If you do not like to work with the Sidebar, then you only need to enable it once.
This toolbar exchanges nicely with toolbar "Text Object"/"Text Formatting" in Writer/Calc and "Text Formatting" in Draw/Impress.
==> Works for me.

My point: toolbar has border color picker.. and fill picker (not working as expected in this case.. but that's a different bug). 

So border color picker which also applies to text box borders, without the ability to set a border seems incomplete too me

Aside from this doesn't match Writer behavior.. Which I perceive as 'better'.

Adding the line style dropdown would solve the problem and eventually take less space than the standard toolbar occupies.

Seems we have some acceptance for the line style drop down in Impress' classic toolbar. Do you volunteer, Andreas?
