maybe a local bare repo could do the trick:

git clone --bare --mirror <remote li>/core /srv/git/core.git

create local clone with

git clone /srv/git/core.git work_core

that should be done with hard-link as possible on linux at least

and then change the push_url on work_core to point back to the remote
libreoffice one

then all you need is a little warpper script (or that can be added to
./g for instance
so that you fetch /src/git/core.git before you pull/fetch from work_dir

note it should be possible too to deal with the submodule registration
in work_core/.git/config so that hey also read from
srv/git/<module>.git and push to the 'right place'
