If you select all text (the whole document) and menu Format>Clear direct formatting (Ctl M), lots may change visually, does the document then behave as you might expect styles to behave. I do this as a matter of course to get MS docs into odts that I can style properly.

If i update a style that is used in a document e.g. change font and font
size, should the whole document where that style is used be changed to the
new settings when <Apply> is pressed?  Currently I have to highlight the
areas and then reapply the style to it.

They should update automatically *unless* direct formatting is applied to
the text. Direct formatting always brings problems. Can you share a
document, so we can see where the problem is? AFAIK the mailing list strips
attachments, so you need to upload the sample document anywhere else.
I 've just done a few more tests after reading your comments.  All the tests i've done are using the 
"Default Style".
I went back to the Windows 10 version and I changed the font to something radically different to 
what i really wanted and it did change a lot of the document with that style but not all of it.  I 
think i missed it before because the paragraph that i had on the screen didn;t change but when i 
changed it to a weird font it scrolled the text up the screen a few lines so i could the text below 
it and see a change. So i changed the font back to something sensible and it worked but it did not 
change the font size at all, it was stuck at 14pt even though i changed it to 12pt.
I've discovered that if i change the font/size in "default style", it affects other parts of the document 
that has "text body" style applied.
Its the same on version 6 on linux.
