Sure does it needs to be maintained.
And for that reason it's important to get libreoffice built on the non-release architectures.

Yes, I'm sure Adrian will fix lots of issues in libreoffice for those architectures.
He did in the past together with the ports maintainers.
Speaking for hppa, libreoffice was fixed in 2017, then cleanly compiled until 2018:

It would be really nice and helpful for the debian-ports platforms if you would
merge those, unless they break the release architectures.
