Unfortunately not.

I'm working on a TableBorder2 property that contains BorderLine2 instead
of BorderLine, that will be for 3.6 though so probably doesn't help you
right now with your actual problem.

That might also be due to some bugs around the BorderLine properties,
which we only recently fixed. Master and 3-5 may already be better,
some fixes are also in 3-5-0. Especially if for non-double lines only
InnerLineWidth was set and OuterLineWidth was 0 then no border was
drawn, may be workarounded by setting OuterLineWidth instead.

You can peek into editeng/source/items/frmitems.cxx methods
SvxBoxItem::LineToSvxLine() and lcl_lineToSvxLine() and
editeng/source/items/borderline.cxx method
