I've figured it out - it's because after installing the communitheme and
removing it, I logged into a standard Wayland session rather than the
standard Xorg one, the bug is actually that the fonts are broken in the
snap on a Wayland session

** Summary changed:

- [snap] Fonts seem 'thinner' than they should be
+ [snap] Fonts seem 'thinner' than they should be on Wayland

** Tags added: wayland

** Description changed:

+ Edit: on second thoughts, I think the below seemed to change the
+ situation because it meant I logged into the Ubuntu session instead of
+ the Ubuntu on Xorg session. The bug is simply that fonts look 'thinner'
+ than they should in the LibreOffice snap on Wayland, and it's only the
+ snap that's affected.

  After using `sudo add-apt-repository ppa:communitheme/ppa` and adding
  the packages there, and then installing `ppa-purge`, removing the
  packages, and using `ppa-purge` on the PPA, my fonts in the LibreOffice
  snap seemed to break. I've given an example of 'a quick brown fox jumps
  over the lazy dog' and a screenshot of a Writer document and its PDF
  export in Document Viewer side by side.
