I have now checked this for LO 6.3.2.2 on Kubuntu 18.04. Result:

I confirm (comment 5) that if the source paragraph has a style applied, copying
part of this paragraph into another one does not transfer that style. Moreover,
what I observed for the Windows version now holds for the Linux version, too:
Paragraph properties are generally not transferred if only part of a paragraph
is copied and pasted. I.o.w.: For properties applying to an entire paragraph,
it does not matter for the copy/paste operation whether they have been
stipulated specifically for the source paragraph or they are properties of a
style applied to it. So far, so good; problem partly solved.

However, a difference appears for character properties:
- If a certain character property (say font size 10 pt) is set in the style
applied to the source paragraph, it is not transferred by copy/paste of part of
it.
- If the same property is assigned specifically to the source paragraph, then
it is inherited by all of its parts and, therefore, transferred to the paste
target.

This is still inconsistent. Properties applied to entire paragraphs should
_never_ be copied if only part of them is copied.

Moreover, see Bug 113605, comment 6.
