Summarizing, it seems I need some efficient way to tell Calc, when it

What Mirosław Zalewski has suggested upthread is essentially correct. The
data formats must match the language used (usually the locale) on import.
The solutions are to either: (a) edit the data to contain data formats used
in the expected language; (b) change the expected language on the Text
Import dialogue to match the used data formats. For a numeric format of
-100.25 try selecting a Language of "English (US)" or equivalent on the Text
