Two things come to mind when I reread your original email: "I am using 6.3, vanilla ubuntu". Is the default font the same one as the default font for the Ubuntu system? What happens if you change the Ubuntu default to the font you want to use? What happens if you download LibreOffice 6.3 from the LibreOffice web site. Will you still have this problem?

getting the font of a paragraph to obey the paragraph style
instead it tends to default to a font called "Default paragraph font"
something else and no amount of removal of direct formatting or using
ctrl-m helps. Anyone got any ideas?
Is this the Default paragraph style, or your own style?
If it is your own style, did you select the text and apply this
paragraph style to all the text? Otherwise the paragraph will be in the
default style.
You apply a style to the selection by double clicking on the style in
the Styles and Formatting side pane or in the Style selector.
Also your own style will have to specify itself for Next Style,
otherwise the next paragraph will again be the default style.
