The expected behavior of layers within SVG files exported from DRAW is completely different to SVG files from other sources, e.g. Inkscape. It is as layers are totally ignored.
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Create 2+ layers within draw
2.Place a shape on each layer
3.Export the slide to a SVG file (File - Export ... name + SVG Format)
4.Import the file to a program for further processing e.g. Sozi Presenter or Inkscape
Alternative / vice verca
1. Open the SVG file as linked in "Other information", this file does contain layers
2. After Import the existing layers are removed / not accessible
Layers crated by DRAW are not available
All shapes are merged to one shape and can not be selected individually
Existing layers in an SVG File imported from e.g. Inkscape are not shown
Layers may be used within such programs (Inkscape, Sozi Presenter)
Each shape should be an individual object
Layers in imported files should be available
User Profile Reset: Yes

layers exported from draw
Inkscape produces non-standard SVG. The SVG standard has no concept of layers.
Inkscape uses the idea to put all shapes from one layer into a group element. I first thought too, that would work, but in LibreOffice grouping is orthogonal to layers.
If you have an idea how to handle layers in a way conform to SVG standard, please add it to bug 95717.
