The same operation (opening a template file) succeeds with libreoffice installed as a deb, and the template is read-only too. The major difference between the two is that in the case of the deb the error code when trying to open the file in write mode is EACCES, whereas for the snap it's EROFS. I guess libreoffice handles those two situations differently.

However the same templates can be opened and used from the individual apps, e.g. from impress for that Blueprint_Plans template.
