We used to be able to drag the sub-toolbar off. Unlocking toolbar has no effect.

Confirming for gen/gtk3/kf5. View > Toolbars > Lock Toolbars on/off affects these "sub-toolbars" too. But we still want these widgets to float.
*** Bug 145196 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
The problem has been introduced between version 184.108.40.206_alpha1 (31.May 2021) and 220.127.116.11_beta1 (17.Jun 2021). It is related to the new uno command .uno:ToolbarLock. You can customize your LibreOffice, e.g. menu Tools or View, to include it. You find it by searching for 'Lock'. It has the tooltip 'Lock or unlock all toolbars'.
As default this has the state 'Locked'. If you click it, all toolbars will become unlocked. That affects not only the main toolbars themselves but also their sub-toolbars. You can then drag the sub-toolbars again to make them floating.
If you unlock a single toolbar using its context menu, that will not unlock its sub-toolbars. You need to use the global command at least once.
I consider at least the fact, that unlocking an individual toolbar does not unlock its sub-toolbars as bug.
A different question is, whether the sub-toolbars should be affected by the lock of its parent toolbar at all or be always floatable.
