Why does LibreOffice still have such poor formatting of .docx and some doc files despite the claims of improvement?

I've noticed that there is still very poor formatting of (most) .docx documents, especially those containing fields and graphics. The same thing happens with .doc files. Yet, LibreOffice is supposed to be able to handle these smoothly now. Am I missing something?

A bit of an explanation.

P.S. my apologies for asking such a vague question; right now the particular file I'm using has sensitive information (it belongs to someone else to besides). However, if I can find another test document I will show you a screenshot.

One of the main problems is that images are not aligned correctly. They show up as being either outside of or offset on the page. Also, the document (a letter), contains pages with different layouts (one page is landscape, the other is portrait), but it attempts to lay each page out as landscape.
