Libreoffice Writer won't start unless is reachable over network

If I’m online all is OK, and from tcpdump I can see some data are exchanged over https with
Am I’m only one having this problem? How can I prevent this behavior? Is it possible to disable
I’m using:

LIbreOffice Version: (X86_64)
Build ID: 50(Build:1)
CPU threads: 2; OS: Linux 6.1; UI render: default; VCL: gtk3
Calc: threaded

LibreOffice is installed from natively from distribution, I’m on Fedora 38.
Also I have LanguageToolsServer disabled in Tool->Options->Language Settings->LanguageToolServer. Also in Language Settings->Writing Aids I have disabled Language Tool Remote Gammar Checker.
