My assumption would be that JAWS is still somehow relying on the previously reported app name and/or version to detect LibreOffice.
If so, that should be changed/fixed in JAWS in my opinion.
(I'd suggest to either query for the toolkit name, which is "VCL" or support not just "LibreOffice" as app name, but also "LibreOfficeDev", which is the name that the development version uses, and app names for vendor-specific LibreOffice derivatives.)

Consistently with your conclusions here, Orca under Linux has no issue here, as far as I can tell. I'm running 7.5.1 on Arch Linux.
2. When navigating in a pull-down menu JAWS is silent and no longer
reads the item that has focus. Example: press alt+T for the Tools menu and press down arrow to navigate in this menu. JAWS is now silent when moving
from one item to the next.

This starts at this commit and looks like a regression in LibreOffice:
("[API CHANGE] Drop css::accessibility::XAccessibleStateSet")

I just ran LibreOffice Writer, used F10 to access the menus and navigated around. I can't reproduce this issue with Linux and Orca.
