I found and solved the problem by inspecting the content.xml of the odt-file. (I did so by saving the document as "flat XML" and opening it in a text editor) The problematic quotations looked like this: <text:p text:style-name="Quotations"><text:span text:style-name="BLABLABLA">This quote didn't work</text:span>

The unproblematic quotations looked like this:

<text:p text:style-name="Quotations"><text:span text:style-name="BLABLABLA"><text:span text:style-name="T10">This quotation was rightly formatted.</text:span>

Seems to me as if the author of the original .docx-file defined a stylesheet "BLABLABLA" manually and LO somehow had problems resolving the incorrectly nested -definitions. Deleting the text:span text:style-name="BLABLABLA"> was the solution.
