I would assume sidebar users would always have the sidebar open and if they
close/hide the sidebar to momentarily free space, they would open/unhide the
sidebar soon after. If you think that sidebar users would like to have the
option to change the behaviour of double click to always open the sidebar, then
it may be a useful feature for add and users can turn that on in Tools >
Options or through the sidebar settings context menu.

They are doing this for a limited set of things where they can fit everything
that was in a dialog into the sidebar. LO's sidebar wont likely have this.
