It seems that the PDF/A-1a selection box does the opposite to what it is expected to do:
If I export to PDF and check the PDF/A-1a selection box, I get the warning that my Document (impress as well as writer) contains tranparency - but then a PDF including transparent colored objects is generated. If I open that document with evince, properties say, it is PDF/A-1a format.
If I uncheck the PDF/A-1a selection box, I get no warning and in the resulting PDF file, transparent colored Objects are all gray. Evince reports that filt to be in PDF-1.4 format.
Same behaviour in LO 3.4.2
