It's a worry that some users prefer new "features" over standards
compliance and quality control.

Please do not see new software features as changes to the document
format. Over 99% of new features do not have any impact on the document
format, which is the same as before. And there might be a change in the
document format which is not reflected in any software feature.

So, new software features and standard compliance are different
problems/issues. When you talk about standards document formats you
never consider software features, because the two are not related. You
should really have a look at some of the OASIS ODF TC meeting minutes to
understand what the standard is about.

Agree, it means that if a user is concerned about compatibility, they
must understand to disable the default settings in LO.

No, if a user is concerned about interoperability - as I am - he should
use the ODF 1.2 Extended document format, because this is the format
with the best standard compatibility.

How does OO compare; are documents created to the odf standard by default?

Same as LibreOffice. Actually, the "extended" format strategy was
started by OOo when OOo 2.0 was launched back in 2005, and has been
maintained so far. Actually, not even Microsoft was able to complain
with this strategy, and has never dared to say that the ODF Extended
document format was not standard.
