Thanks to Brian Barker, using a replacement table to replace the Symbol font with the OpenSymbol font worked to make the bullet points correctly.

Since this worked, it may be helpful to others to have it articulated:
o Go to Tools | Options... | LibreOffice | Fonts.
o Tick "Apply replacement table".
o Enter "Symbol" and "OpenSymbol".

I don't mean to be too inquisitive, but does someone know why and how this is the solution, ...

I'm guessing, but is it possible that the Symbol font in the generating system (wherever it comes from) has the bullets in a different place from where they are in the version of Symbol you have - but that OpenSymbol has them in the same place? Is it a Unicode issue? Remember that word processor documents (generally) carry font names, not the fonts themselves.

... and could OpenSymbol be made the default so that compatibility with Word documents will be improved?

I cannot know whether that would generally be an improvement. But it's what you have arranged by this setting, of course.

I trust this helps.
