Those are not the debian packages of LibreOffice 3.3.1. It's .deb files, yes,

This isn't true afair, apt will notice and install the new one. It at least does
in some cases. But even if not, there's no repository either way so you need to
install using dpkg -i either way, and that one doesn't care :)

That issue ic caused by using the "build version" as debian revision. As that one
didn't change and won't change in the near future I guess...

... I'd guess this will be still 1.7.0-19 also in 3.3.2.
