If you click on the very nice new drop-down menus for the Bullets and Numbering toolbar buttons and select the More Bullets / More Numbering options then this should lead to the corresponding tab in the dialogue box and not the last one selected.
Reproduced with LO 18.104.22.168.beta1.
Thanks for your bug report.

I disagree with this. The drop-down are showing the same items as the corresponding tabs of the dialog, so it doesn't make sense to show those tabs. Instead I propose to default to the "Options" tab for both drop-downs.

Then, the “More Numbering” and “More Bullets” strings are inaccurate.

They are accurate, because the "Options" tab gives more styles for both numbering and bullets.
Maxim Monastirsky committed a patch related to this issue.
It has been pushed to "master":
fdo#86546 Open the right tab for more bullets and numbering
It will be available in 4.5.0.
The patch should be included in the daily builds available at
http://dev-builds.libreoffice.org/daily/ in the next 24-48 hours. More
information about daily builds can be found at:
Affected users are encouraged to test the fix and report feedback.
Thanks for the patch. Just a reminder that 4.5 is master now, so please do cherry-pick these new patches for 4.4 if applicable. :D
Pushed to 4-4 as well:
during this phase (until the first RC is released) developers are pushing to 4-4 as well (at their discretion) and no peer review is required. But the bugs aren’t currently receiving commit notifications for that branch because of a bug in the new bugzilla script.
