No to both ;-P

The original file for cell B13 contains an element

  <f t="dataTable" ref="B13:D17" dt2D="1" dtr="0" r1="D7" r2="C4"/>

which expresses the table "formula" as a dataTable type.

Calc when saving stores TABLE() formulas in the involved cells instead,
which apparently was the correct way to do in the binary .xls format but
not in OOXML .xlsx

Please open a bug for this.
