Although yes, not allowing macros of any sort to run would be more secure, the default installation is to only allow macros from trusted sources and unsigned macros are disabled. So, macros signed by a trusted source are allowed and nothing else. This includes macros included with LO that may be part of things such as certain Wizards; at least there used to be wizards for things like document migration included.

I think that disabling all macros would be confusing if you attempted to use a Wizard and it failed to run. I could be mistaken, I did not bother to test (lazy I guess).

I don't consider LO usable until I have lowered the setting one level, which requires that I say yes / no for every document that I load that runs macros. I never set it to just run any macro.
