Anchor to paragraph not saved

I have inserted an image into a document and set the anchor "to paragraph". This works as expected while I continue editing the document. However, if I save, shut down Writer, and then re-open the document, the image has its anchor set "to character".

This behaviour occurs in version as well as

... and your document's format (something you didn't mention) is one of Word's formats, which don't have the "to paragraph" anchor type?

Ah! Yes, you are correct -- that's exactly what the problem was. Thanks!

For the record: the problem is using one of MS Word document formats, which lack the "to paragraph" anchor type.
