I just tried to do this
1. In a new document change page style to rigth
2. Insert manual page break with page style left and page number 1

Result: Information "Page numbers conot be applied to the current page. Even
numbers can be used on left pages and odd numbers on right pages." pops up. So
there is no way to avoid the odd pages right rule

So I want to propose the following improvement: If someone inserts page break
and restarts numbering there will pop ub an information like "Odd pages are
always right pages. Writer will insert a hidden page automatically if necssary"

And (independend of an improvement and as written in comment 5 of bug 126284)
we need a documentation of that issue.
