Yes, that is correct. Excel (2016 and earlier) like OOo/AOO/LibreOffice Calc
all format use vertical alignment to bottom as default.

Question is if there is any technical reason that vertical align top can not be
used as a default in LibreOffice, and if formatting for SID_ALIGN_ANY_VDEFAULT
can be made configurable to allow users to set their preference.

Default should remain to bottom to maintain legacy use and interoperability
with Excel, but users could then set their vertical allignment to top, or to
center, or to bottom in profile--probably done via Expert
configuration--without requiring use of a template.
