The DOCX document
This is a sample Right-to-Left document that contains text and image merge fields, some of which inside layout tables. Merge fields are spaced apart to appear in the desired positions as rendered in MS Word.
Some absent fonts are substituted by platform fonts in Word and LO which is not at issue here.

If you have time, please do the following:
Test to see if the bug is still present on a currently supported version of LibreOffice
(5.1.5 or 5.2.1 https://www.libreoffice.org/download/

your operating system, and any changes you see in the bug behavior

3. Leave a comment with your results.
