According to the documentation, the current behavior isn't wrong:

-nodefault    don't start with an empty document

Because the StartCenter is not a document.

It's the other way around: LO integrated code. AOO does not
integrate LO code, due to license conflict.

Back to this issue, supposing that we do not want to introduce yet another
parameter, and we interpret the -nodefault as don't starting with an empty
document nor with the StartCenter, then this bug can be solved by simply adding
&& !pCmdLineArgs->IsNoDefault() in 

(!pCmdLineArgs->WantsToLoadDocument() && !pCmdLineArgs->IsInvisible() &&
!pCmdLineArgs->IsHeadless() && !pCmdLineArgs->IsQuickstart())
