It isn’t a bug. You get the same behavior in any other application. The
direction of the characters in not determined by the language, but by fixed
Unicode character properties and the Unicode Bi-direction Text Algorithm
(http://unicode.org/reports/tr9), which LibreOffice is complaint with.

That is unfortunate, but I don’t see how LibreOffice would know at which side
the user wants the punctuation when both options are possibly valid and the one
in use now is the most common, replace the + with an exclamation mark or
closing quote, would you want it to be on the right of the C?
