It seems that VoiceOver reads tabs as buttons.
It is true in Libre Office and  other applications, but it is false in general. The object for 
multi-tab dialogs is available under MacOSX and it is properly recognized by Voice Over. 
When I am on a tab page, I use the Tab key to navigate the controls inside
it. I believe Mac OS also use the Tab key for this.

Yes, it is true. You can navigate a dialog with tab key, but, if yo are using Voice Over, another 
possibility is  to use ctrl+option+arrow keys. This movement  command allows a blind user to 
navigate  a dialog landing on objects normally unreachable using tab: labels associated to 
controls, warning text containing in a dialog and so on. There are are movement command available 
in Voice Over. Of course,  the controls in paragraph or character dialogs are reachable using tab 
tho they are not correctly labelled; but none of the other movement  Voice Over command works.
LibreOffice bugs are reported at <>, so
before entering new bugs, you need to create an account there.
thank you!
