If the styling in your documents is all identical it may be easier to write a script to unzip the DOCX, edit the XML, and write back the edited version. Styles are document-based, unless there is an associated template. Since v4.0 the template management in LO has undergone a fairly substantial change.

This answer is relevant for LO v3.x, however the related comment points out a v4.0 UI issue (FDO#60589) for which only a manual workaround is currently available. There is a debate in that thread about the relationship between styles and templates that may be worth reading.

This answer details how to associate a template in such a manner that it is automatically checked when the related document is opened. Again though, this is really only of use if you already have an associated template (and the files are of native format). How effective this is for DOCX I am uncertain.
