The Python macro examples in Tools -> Macros -> Organize Macros ... -> Python
are not editable from within LibreOffice.
The reason is twofold:
1) the 'Edit' button is grayed out an
2) the file location is usually not user-editable.
This could be fixed by:
1) launching the systems editor for Python files and
2) moving the example files from /opt/libreoffice4.3/share/Scripts/python to ~/.config/libreoffice/4/user/Scripts/python
TESTING with LO 18.104.22.168 + Ubuntu 14.04

There is a built-in editor inside LibreOffice, so that could be used...

Sounds like a plausible idea for an enhancement.
Status -> NEW
I strongly suggest to make a copy of the example python macro to your user profile for editing. The examples are just examples, if you need editing, make a copy then.
I agree with "make your own copy for editing". However, there really should be a built-in editor for Python.
It would be great to merge Calcs UI with the power of the strong processing and computing eco-system of Python (NumPy, SciPy, SciKit-learn etc.).
