Description LL 2014-02-09 07:18:57 UTC
When Smart Quote is turned on, the closing quote of a quote enclosing an Asian phrase uses the Asian font face and Asian quote, while the opening quote uses Western font face and Western quote.

I.e., it may become >> Land Management Law of the PRC (“中华人民共和国土地管理法』)
or >> Land Management Law of the PRC (“中华人民共和国土地管理法”) [*where the '”' is in a different font face from the '“']

The closing quote *always* retains its default automated form even if it is manually replaced, unless the Smart Quote function is switched off.

Confirming that the closing quote mark is in different font (Code2000 in my case) than the opening one (Liberation Serif) -- couldn't get it to look like a Chinese quote mark, though.
Tried on Linux (with LibO 4.2.0 RC4), so probably affects all platforms.
