If you use styles the way it's intended, you won't have those problems in
the first place. I have never had them (as far as I remember), even when I
was not using styles properly. Direct formatting should generally be
avoided, if you ask me.
Yes if you only work with odt documents. But if you force to deal with
docx and you run into problems, that feature might be useful.

I have a .docx file that I experimented with. These are the things that I did with it.

1) Opened the .docx file in LO, and saved it as a .odt file.

2) Used Control+A to select the entire document.

3) Right clicked the text and then selected "Clear Direct Formatting".

4) Used LO to reformat the document to match the original documents layout.

I did run into problems with hyperlinks as they retained the original format especially the font and font size. To get around that, I recreated the hyperlinks along side of the originals. Then I erased the originals.

If you want, I could take a look at your document to see what could be done with it.
