Using LibreOffice on macOS High Sierra (10.13.6), setting the
number format to "#,##0\." (without the quotes, of course) works for me.
("#,##0.." also works, but that's too bizarre.;-)

On my version (6.1.5) both of these formats display the cell
contents with a trailing decimal point, but with this
formatting, inputting 123.45 results in cell content 12345.

This thread caught my eye and I can't imagine the use case for displaying the digital point as the 
OP wishes - but I gave his model a try as I did also with the two expressions proposed by Chuck. I 
am using Calc in Ubuntu 20.04.2  The results were surprising.

I entered 123.59 in some cells in 3 columns formatted as: -

1) Numbers #,##0"."

2) Numbers #,##0\.

3) Numbers  #,##0..

All three columns then displayed my entries as "124."   ie, rounded up and with a final "."

But, when I entered 123.59 into other empty cells in those 3 pre-formatted columns, my new entries were 
displayed as "12,359." in each case.

So applying the format to an already entered number gives a final "." - I don't know whether the 
rounding up is acceptable or not. But I imagine the OP wants to enter his number into cells that already have 
his format applied.

Curiously, when I selected my 3 columns and attempted to return to 'normality' by formatting the cells 
to Numbers > General, nothing happened. I had to change to some other format than Number (eg date) 
and then back to numbers-general to get a result.

When Numbers-General was eventually restored, the "124."  entries were returned to their original states of "123.59" 
but those entries applied to the pre-formatted columns and which then displayed as "12,359." became "12359" under the 
restored numbers-general regime.
