Those are redirect pages and either they will disappear automatically or
will never be invoked by the software.

3.4 strings are frozen. These are deletions only, but still, I would not
commit this to 3-4 branch. It will disappear from WikiHelp by the
release of 3.5.

Well, if a chunk is missing from the page, you would not know that it
was there regardless of the version control. When some day LibreOffice
has the update feature, it has to be documented. But I'm not strongly
against removing those commented out lines.

Thanks for your work.
