No great mystery.
If they are more conservative--LibreOffice 4.2.6 is a solid build, somewhat
lacking in the latest office features.
If they have more tolerance for change, and accept the potential for some
as yet undescribed bugs affecting use, then early adoption of the 4.3.0
branch is a reasonable choice.
Both are good well tested software packages.
I think you're saying that 4.2.6 is essentially bugfree, but 4.3.x is not.
I suppose that an "undescribed" bug is one that the LO developers dd not
discover during their testing, and that we users are the next test bed.
I generally eschew programs with version numbers ending in 0, for that
I just checked and I see that I have v126.96.36.199. "Check for updates" tells
me that 4.2.5 (no typo!) is available for manual downloading. Where are
4.2.6 and 4.3.0?
