Reproduced 7.2+ and back to LO 3.5. Not with 3.4 for DOCX so could be a regression.
Except I'm not sure what happens here (not a matter of fonts).
If DOCX saved as DOC in MSO, repro also 7.2+ and OO 3.3.

Looks like an "every TWIP is important" kind of bug.

I'm guessing it is somehow related to line spacing being EXACTLY 28pt - which is a rather odd setting. It is probably affecting the un-editable footnote separator and causing it to take up a bit more space than normal.

LO handles the footnote separator in a completely different way from Word, so no matter what the ultimate cause, it shouldn't be surprising that there is a sizing difference in the amount of space available on the page. LO isn't wasting as much space, so one row of the table still fit on the first page.

DOCX compared in MSO and LO

Not sure it's about 28 pt. Same with 20. 
LO has "Allow table to split across pages and columns". It turned off, table goes to page 2. 
Can't see what's MSO equivalent.

There is no direct MSO equivalent. The way they do it is to mark every first-column cell's 1st paragraph as "keep with next paragraph" IIRC.

> Not sure it's about 28 pt. Same with 20.
This is specified on the Normal paragraph style, so it probably affects the separator line itself, and not only the footnote. I didn't figure out how to edit the separator line(s). (Perhaps it is only possible by editing the footnotes.xml file itself.)

To be sure, I checked with oldest of bibisect-43all (which predates 3.5 a bit), and indeed the bug is there already, setting preBibisect.
