Testing sample document with current master/6.2.0, the documents sheet presents
a "default" Cell Style without "Wrap text automatically" enabled.

Meaning the example cell *is* under Direct Formatting to wrap its text.

Modify the default style to include the wrap text automatically, and apply it
(the Update Style on the content panel).  Alignment/wrap within the cells is
picked up from the style as opposed to the direct formatting.

And, with the change to Cell Style, all other cells being entered will wrap
within their Column width as set, shifting height--the desired behavior.

Beyond the row height response when the Sytle to wrap text is enabled, IIUC
controlling column width and row height is not done by any cell style and so
any change to set "Optimal Height / Optimal Width" are Direct Formatting of the
selected cells or columns/rows. 

So again, I don't see an issue here (other than our on going challenge of
educating users (and QA members) about styles vs direct formatting)--but I
could be wrong.

I've no concern with taking this back through UX-Advise, but the behavior seems
correct IMHO.
