So the system lib /usr/lib64/, which is NSS 3.59, picks up 
LO's own /core/instdir/program/, which is still at 3.55 
for master...

Debugging that without an openSUSE system was a bit hard... IMHO this is 
a bug in their java-11-openjdk source / java-11-openjdk-headless. They 
provide a patched nss.cfg, on your system in 
/usr/lib64/jvm/java-11-openjdk-11/conf/security/nss.cfg, which sets:

nssLibraryDirectory = /usr/lib64

My one on Debian doesn't.

The result is, that Java now always loads the from that 
directory, instead of using the search order to find it (man 
/ man dlopen). But LO sets the LD_LIBRARY_PATH, so the will first 
look for its libraries in /.../instdir/program. And there it finds the from your build, which is too old and misses the 
NSSUTIL_3.59 symbol, resulting in your error.

I suggest you try, if removing that line helps and then report a bug to
