Screenshot from 4.3.0...master

Current master's toolbar buttons ("bold"-"italic"-"underline") don't change it's state according to current text.

As you can see from attachments, they are static now. And this is regression, because in 4.0.x they were "active" (see next attachment).

From menu "LibreOfficeDev", your mean?
Build ID: Built by Douglas Mencken for PowerPC

I can add that:
1) paragraph alignment icons in the same toolbar are "active", so their state is switched accordingly to current alignment;
2) font name and size pull-downs (in the same toolbar) reflect correct name and size under text cursor;
3) BIU (bold--italic--underline) buttons are static even when rendering them "non-natively": see screenshot.

Where's in the source tree the code which deals with triggering tollbar buttons?

I think you might get that answer faster by mailing the developer mailinglist (http://lists.freedesktop.org/mailman/listinfo/libreoffice) or ask in the IRC freenode #libreoffice-dev chat (see https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/IRC)
