I regret being unable to reply to your question sooner.   Having followed
your instructions to re-create the problem:

Now do the same thing in LibreOffice. Note that "Default Formatting" now
appears to do nothing. The character style stays the same. It would appear
that the only method for removing the style applied at step 3 above is to
choose the character formatting from the Style dock.

Is this by design?

Thanks in advance,

...I was unable to re-create the problem.   On Ubuntu 10,04, the selected
text changed as desired in LO3.3 and OO3.3.
Having used integrated office suites since before Frameworks & First Choice
as well as dedicated word processors like Wang & Lanier, I was surprised at
the example's goal as stated.  For such changes, you might want to consider
using "undo" to remove the undesired formatting codes which, while
non-printing, may still inflate the size of the finished document if simply
short-circuited by new (additional) formatting codes.  Such wasted code is
often apparent in finished/published HTML pages/documents and PDF documents
where style/font changes were numerous.
I hope your problem has been resolved satisfactorily.  Apparently, it was
not by design to have LO behave differently from OO.  

Best regards,
