Thank you for mentioning that again.

uses it in LibreOfficeOnline.conf, should be modified, too?

It currently says:

  --disable-gui           Disable use of X11 or Wayland to reduce
                          dependencies. Not related to the --headless
                          command-line option. Not related to LibreOffice
                          Online functionality. Don't use unless you are
                          certain you need to. Nobody will help you if you
                          insist on trying this and run into problems.

It was supported as of now I'd do (+ finetuning)
in the Debian packages...
