What happens (the trick) is that you can use two kind of "file browsing" 
layout styles: the one that comes with LO and your system's default.

If you use the GNOME or KDE dialog for open/search files within LO 
programs you are stick at their defaults and at least in nautilus (the 
gnome file browser) you can only sort -by default- by one field 
(filename, size, type...) and the last option you have selected does not 
remain after you close it.

Fortunately the LO file browse dialog allows this option and keeps the 
column sorted by your last selection. To be sincere, I didn't know about 
this feature of the LO file dialog, but I knew about the two styles and 
at least one of them does it the way you need.
