I have 4 columns, all text Courier New 8pt. I have the indent set at 5pt and optimal column width with an add of 0.0. Every time I reopen the file the column indents are set to 16pt.
I am saving as xlsx.
Thank you for reporting this bug!
I have been able to confirm this issue. It is reproducible with LO 22.214.171.124 (Win7 Home, 64bit).
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open a new spreadsheet in CALC
2. Type "1" in the cells A1, B1, C1 and D1
3. Select these four cells and make a right mouse click on them and go to FORMAT CELLS
4. Go to the tab ALINGMENT and changed the Text Alignment / Horizontal from "Default" to "Left" and then change the Indent to 5pt and press OK
5. Select the columns A, B, C and D and go to the menu FORMAT -> COLUMN -> OPTIMAL WIDTH
6. Select Add = 0.0" and press OK
7. Save the file as a xlsx file (go to the menu FILE -> SAVE AS)
8. Close the file
9. Reopen the saved file
10. Go to the cells A1, B1, C1 and D1 and check the indent (go to the menu FORMAT -> CELLS -> tab ALIGNMENT)
Result: The Indent is changed to 15pt.
reproducible with LO 126.96.36.199 (Win 7 Home Premium 32bit)
It's a very strange behaviour..when I test:
- save as .xlsx -> indent changed to 16pt
- save as .xls -> indent changed to 10pt
I remember that I previously saw that bug while opening .xls which created by Open Office and MS Office
Reproducible with LO 188.8.131.52, Win 8.1
xlsx -> indent changed to 15pt
xls -> indent changed to 10pt

ODS, file with A1, B1, C1, D1 column indentation set to 20pt
This is an limitation of the OOXML format. The indentation is saved in .xlsx, as integer value, where an increment of 1 represents 3 spaces.
Unfortunately we cannot do much to fix that bug.
