So if I understood all this thread:
1. Yes, LibreOffice presents to Iaccessible2, thus NVDA, the "accelerator" checking on the box "Reading objects shortcuts". 2. No, LibreOffice doesn't send to Iaccessible2 the shortcut of the objects which have one, such as ctrl-o, ctrl-p, ctrl-x, etc.

Should I report this to bugzilla now?

@Tom, *,

No, you're asking the right question.  But you do need to look under the
bonnet from time to time.

Within the LibreOffice code there are two broad classes of keyboard
accelerators.   One is associated with the .uno action associated with each
object in the user interface.  The other are specific key functions defined

Most of the current implementation can be reviewed here:
Other than the GenericCommands.xcu, different modules assign "access keys"
as needed

These are the "global"  "keyboard accelerator/short-cut keys" and each
LibreOffice module responds in some fashion to them.  The KEY_MOD1 and
KEY_MOD2 differ depending on OS.

The native accessibility bridges handle only the first, the "access keys".
But does so pretty effectively at this point.

Enhancement would be to do as Mozilla and Adobe (and I assume Google) have
done,  and simply label each menu item (or button) with its "keyboard
accelerator/short-cut key" as appropriate for the function.   The rub would
come with needing to accommodate keys for each OS and possibly  UI issues
with the  l10n/i18n support.
