Are there any rules which decide "this csv is to open with writer, and
that by calc?"

​On what OS ?​
At least on Windows and most Linux, it' the OS that decide what application
is used to open a file. On Linux it's mostly driven by mime types, while on
Windows the filename extension play a major role.
As far as I know, after installation, LibreOffice will not register itself
to handle different file types.
​For example, on one of my installation (Debian Linux with KDE), the
text/csv file type is associated with, in that order, LOCalc​, some basic
text editors, LOWriter, some file viewers. LibreOffice have no saying in

​To help, it would be useful to know more about your system, and if you did
install/uninstall software recently that might have caused this behavior.
In any case, the fix most likely lies in the system configuration.​
