Regular expressions should be enhanced to permit finding only those paragraphs that end with a specified string together with finding the paragraph end itself, so that I can remove a paragraph break after a paragraph but only if it ends with a given string.
What found the paragraphs but did not permit removing the breaks (the original paragraphs each contained only the string "=====" without quotation marks while other paragraphs ended with other strings):
My only solution was to manually delete the break after 69 nonconsecutive paragraphs. I saw no regex solution.
If a newer version of Writer has fixed this, that's good enough. The version I'm reporting on has still been getting updated even after reputedly being at EOL.
I guessed my hardware.
Yep this would be useful. Devs can comment, if there is some law of physics that prevents implementation.

Not a duplicate of bug 102374. That bug only affects searching for only the paragraph endmark itself - or for empty paragraphs. This bug is searching for text PLUS the paragraph endmark. That is still not possible. In this case, the $ only requires that the text come at the end of the paragraph, but doesn't select the paragraph mark itself. Thus the paragraph mark is not replaced.
Bug 108256 is a better (unfixed) duplicate since it refers to including the paragraph mark with FOLLOWING text.
