Suppose I need to write a formula immediately followed by some text, e.g. "𝛿-функция". I make a formula %delta, which is then followed by "-функция". I see that there's a lot of space surrounding the delta, so I edit the object and remove default 0.2cm spacing setting it to 0. But some space is still left inside the formula frame.
This is demonstrated in test document.
I don't think a single character is ever going to be a good candidate for a formula frame (or any frame really). I appreciate that you are trying to write 𝛿-function (in Cyrillic script) but why not just use the Mathematical Italic Small Delta (U+1D6FF) as show here and in your description? This would seem to be the appropriate (text) form of use, as delta by itself is not really a formula.
Do you have a better example where a formula needs to be set in close contact with text?
This would also appear to be a duplicate of bug #65067.

Well. It seems you consider anything what can be typeset with Unicode to be not a formula. But:
1. Searching character map (or learning unicode numbers by heart) is counter-productive when you could get your task done by using equation editor.
2. Even fractions and multiple powers can be typeset without equation editor, but why would one bother when there exists an equation editor?
3. What if you get a Word document which has such equations (which do work correctly in Word), and you have to open it with LibO?

I'll have to think harder to find something which fits your demand, since fractions and powers also won't be good enough.
And yeah, this is a dup.
