When you adjust the columns and rows of a table in writer, you see the
positions in the ruler.

Never noticed those small triangles before, but also see them in Dia and they
are helpful only when resizing a non-constrained shape.

This isnt related to typing, because you can only type inside a textbox or
shape. This relates to the moving of that textbox or shape.

Try these steps.
1) Open draw with rulers on
2) Draw a circle
3) Notice the 4 markers in the rulers for the size
4) Move the circle or resize it and notice that the ruler markers only change
after the completion of the action

Was looking for other diagram apps that have this feature in it and found it in
Visio. < https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nPVlWO1rtbE&t=1m44s >

As stated in the description, this features is primarily useful in Draw's
default view that has grid and helplines while moving disabled.
