Document in question

At page 4, there is an image that should be a background for the text. I have received the document for a test during the home schooling, possibly protected by copyright. The document is rendered differently in LO than Micrososft Word. The image is scaled and positioned differently. I have attached screenshots.
There could be a relation to this bug (same document): https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=141222, due to font replacement.
