Specifically, where in libreoffice/3/user/ ... is the Company, First/Last Name, Initials information etc. stored? I like to make back ups of this and for some reason I find it doesn't always map forward during upgrades. I would rather have a quick ability to simply replace a file after upgrading rather than just merely hope the migrating works.

That is recorded in the registrymodifications.xcu file at the root of your LO user profile. The stanzas will be tagged <item oor:path="/org.openoffice.UserProfile/Data">.

The .xcu can be directly edited. But I would use the Tools -> Options panel to manipulate your preferred values, and then copy the stanzas out of the .xcu file to keep as a backup text file of your data. As you upgrade or reinstall, just edit the .xcu removing the blank values and concatenate your data on to the end, then close out the .xcu with an </oor:items> tag.
