This sounds to me to be less of a "fail" than a limitation, unless LO advertises that Impress will write a PostScript file format. Then it could be called a "fail" and should have a bug report submitted on it.

To get you going if you really must have PostScript, you might try pstoedit, a vector file format converter. It may convert (external to LO) a PDF file to a PS file for you. I use it to convert a PostScript CAD drawing for printing to a DXF CAD drawing for editing in LibreCAD and it works fine for that. There may be other converters out there.

Using LibreOffice under CentOS 7.x. Impress can only print to a
printer or to a PDF.  Even though I specify printing to a Postscript file
File / Print / Options / Print to file
General / Properties / Device / Printer language type / Postscript (level
from driver)
then specify the file name as
the result is always a PDF. This is a big fail.
