If that happens when typing numbers in Writer and you have Complex Text Layout (CTL) enabled, check Tools -> Options -> Language Settings -> Complex Text Layout, General Options, Numerals. Likely it's set to Eastern Arabic. If CTL is not enabled and you don't see the Complex Text Layout dialog page, then temporarily enable CTL under Tools -> Options -> Language Settings -> Languages, confirm the dialog with OK and then go to Tools -> Options -> Language Settings -> Complex Text Layout.

If that's for Calc numeric cell values, check your locale (not the UI language). There can be 3 places influencing that:

  1. the number format locale, Format -> Cells -> Numbers; if that is default then
  2. the office wide locale, Tools -> Options -> Language Settings -> Languages, Locale setting; if that is default then
  3. your user's system wide locale
