Deleting or adding images while “record changes” is on, isn't actually saved; when “show changes” is enabled, those aren't displayed as changes (with overstrike/underline and colour).
Reproducible always regardless of the file format.
Verified on 18.104.22.168, changing version.
@Reporter - Version reflects the oldest version that you have seen this behavior, not the newest that it has been tested on. We use comments to say we tested on a later release.
Normal (bug that affects a basic feature of LibO, makes it only half functional)
Low (only affects one subset of a feature, inserting images, not a lot of users affected)
Thanks for helping out!
I do not think this is a bug, maybe can be request for enhancement.
In the LibreOffice help
The review function is available in LibreOffice for text documents and spreadsheet documents.
Not all changes are recorded. For example, the changing of a tab stop from align left to align right is not recorded. However, all usual changes made by a proofreader are recorded, such as additions, deletions, text alterations, and usual formatting.
“If a bug is documented, it is a feature”. It doesn't work like this. A direct LO competitor does that in the supported format, so it's certainly a bug, or a bad format support.

It doesn't say “text deletions”. So it applies to images as well, doesn't it?
Reproducible with LO 22.214.171.124, Win 8.1.
I think Track Changes should record deletions of images.

To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.
There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.
If you have time, please do the following:
Test to see if the bug is still present on a currently supported version of LibreOffice
(5.0.5 or 5.1.0) https://www.libreoffice.org/download/
If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the version of LibreOffice and
your operating system, and any changes you see in the bug behavior
If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave
a short comment that includes your version of LibreOffice and Operating System
Please DO NOT
Update the version field
Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not
appropriate in this case)
If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so: 1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3)
2. Test your bug 3. Leave a comment with your results. 4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to "inherited from OOo"; 4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add "regression" to keyword
Feel free to come ask questions or to say hello in our QA chat: http://webchat.freenode.net/?channels=libreoffice-qa

This is still a valid bug/enhancement request on LibreOffice 126.96.36.199 (running on macOS 10.12.3 Sierra). When choosing to compare a document with a previous version where an image has been replaced by another, only the image from the starting document is shown and there is no mention of the change in the Manage Changes window.
The feature in question was never (completely) implemented to my knowledge, at least not in OpenOffice.org prior to the creation of the LibreOffice project and certainly not in StarOffice before that.
Setting as RFE.
