This is something that happens pretty often if you look carefully.
Depending on what characters you enter, the borders may appear to have a different size or the distances between letters might be different.
I suggest watching the attached video (Bug-Screencapture), it shows the bug pretty, well. Look at the last word in the middle line. ("Was")
(This has been happening for quite a few versions now)

Thank you for reporting the bug. Screencast makes it ver clear. But could you please attach a sample document, as this makes it easier for us to verify the bug?
(Please note that the attachment will be public, remove any sensitive information before attaching it)
Thank you for checking out the bug.
Done. In this sample document, you can trigger the bug in at least two ways:
1. Add a space in front of the very first word (and delete it)
2. First line, last word: delete the "l" in "voluptatum" (and retype it)
You should easily be able to find additional ways of triggering the bug. It's REALLY common.
Also, I suspect that the "justified" text flow may be required for the bug to happen.

Actually, I made a mistake. The steps I produced change the inter-letter distances (which also seems like a bug to me.)
To see the border shift, open Example-Document-2 and, in line 3, delete the "n" in "nisi" and instead add an "m". This should make the last word shift.

I confirm it with
Version: 18.104.22.168.alpha0+ (x64) / LibreOffice Community
Build ID: 15a9bee9ef26ce13ed1e26319306a88b6d886158
CPU threads: 4; OS: Windows 10.0 Build 19042; UI render: Skia/Raster; VCL: win
Locale: de-DE (de_DE); UI: en-GB
(steps from comment 4 and document from comment 5)
I'm not an expert in this topic, but I think it is clear that letter distances might change, if you write an "m" instead of "n". But justified alignment shouldn't change.
To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.
There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.
If you have time, please do the following:
Test to see if the bug is still present with the latest version of LibreOffice from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/
If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.
If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.
Please DO NOT
Update the version field
Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not
appropriate in this case)
If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:
1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3) from https://downloadarchive.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/old/
2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to 'inherited from OOo';
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add 'regression' to keyword
