Ah, that are no "page borders", but that are the lines for "Automatik 
page break". Therefore I was so confused. The color of this lines can be 
set in Tools > Options > LibreOffice > Appearance, section Spreadsheet.

  But they appear only after "print preview" for a sheet was executed.

Yes, I can confirm, that they are not shown initially. After switching 
to "Page Break Preview" (in menu View) and back to "Normal" they are 
shown. Calling "Page preview" and closing will do the same, and calling 
page layout dialog and finish with OK or calling printing dialog as well.

It is a bug (or a missing feature), that they are not shown immediately. 
But that behavior is not new. It is there at least since OOo1.1.5. So 
"NOTABUG" is not really true.

Another question is, whether you want to work on it. Because a lot of 
actions trigger this lines, the "bug" is not severe. In OOo-times there 
had been the large dump "OOo later" for such reports. You can confirm 
the issue and set it to a low importance, or immediately close it with 
WONTFIX. But WONTFIX sound always harsh for the reporter of the bug and 
might discourage him to help in LibreOffice, so I would not use it.

Kind regards
