The main menu has Format > Text > Bold, Italic... which is direct formatting
(it wont change across the document), with the context menu Character >
Default, Emphasis... is character style (the appearance changes over the whole
document if the style is modified). And the same is available at the main menu
under Styles.

Paragraph styles do not override the target, character styles and direct
formatting is taken into the target. The supposed way to format documents is to
use paragraph styles for sections and to highlight only parts with character
style.

That works perfectly for me and I recommend to resolve the issue respectively.
Admittedly it's not really simple, as you may expect, but text processors are
complex software and you have to learn concepts. The alleged inconsistency
comes from the fact that we not only want to support expert users but also
people who just write a short letter with no straight formatting, as an
example.
