I also thought about that already, although I have currently no idea how
to change that keyboard behavior.
BUT ... if that were true ..would / should LibreOffice not behave in the
same way under Ubuntu (Unity desktop), Xubuntu (XFCE) and Mint (Cinnamon)?

it depends. It's a hardware question and the interpretation of the F5
key for brightness management is up to a special driver which the maker
provides, or not.
On my Thinkpad and under Debian Wheezy, all special keys are working.
When I tested earlier versions of otker distos this wasn't the case.

If I revall correctly (this is an old PC of my daugther), I borrowed it
a few years back when I had to spend a week away from home.
At that time the PC was running Windows Vista and I used LibreOffice in
that environment, but do not remember any such behavior ...

Usually nowadays, laptops have  a "Fn" labelled key (lower left part of
the keyboard) that allows switching from Special functions keys
(brightness, volume, etc.) to normal function keys. On my Thinkpad, the
default behaviour is special functions keys. To get the normal function
keys I'd have to press the <Fn>+<Function key> combination which I found
annoying. Fortunately, this behaviour may be toggled in the Thinkpad
BIOS, which I did. Now, pressing a function key alone gives me the
normal function result and to get any of the extended functionalities I
have to press the <Fn>+<Function key> combination.
