The problem you encountered was with Gatekeeper. It prevents you from

So to get AOO to launch, open System Preferences, and select Security
& Privacy. Under the General tab, you’ll see in the bottom half of the
window “Allow apps downloaded from:” with the choices being “App
Store” and “App Store and identified developers.”
Underneath that choice, you should see a notice to the effect that
Gatekeeper blocked AOO from opening, and gives you a button labeled
“Open Anyway.”
But before you can click that button, go to the lower left corner and
click the little lock icon, then enter your administrator’s password.
You can now make changes to the system. Click the “Open Anyway”
button. AOO will launch.

Is this better or more current than what we have now in the OpenOffice
4.1.3 Release Notes? Our instructions have been the same for a few
years, and if the new Mac OS X Sierra adopted another approach they
might need some updates.

To be clear, I refer to the first bullet point here:



The Apple support article linked to hasn't been updated for Sierra. The option "Anywhere – Allow applications to run regardless of their source on the Internet (default in OS X Lion v10.7.5); Gatekeeper is effectively turned off. Note: Developer ID-signed apps that have been inappropriately altered will not open, even with this option selected." has been removed in Sierra.

The rest of the article is valid, especially the Right click option which is the easiest way to activate non-signed applications on macOS.
