Well when you open a context menu from inside of nautilus then that's from a light-element, from the appmenu or app indicator that's a dark-element.
Obviously this isn't a dynamic deal so all app windows fields would be treated as 'light'
There are issues with some menus from inside apps that should be dark but aren't, synaptic is a clear example.
When it comes to apps where one disables the global then it's 50 - 50. some use dark, some light.
(I've found all the 'in window menus' here that dropdown light all use something from gtkrc where all those that dropdown dark are fully gtk3
Also the right click on the window deco, which is dark, always produces a light menu, not a big deal I guess
As does a systray icon in the unity panel

I approve of all the theme changes in 12.04. Its a good combination of light and dark elements.

Linux: You reap what you tweak.
If you want LibreOffice global menu, then just install lo-menubar from software centre
The 'look and feel' of OpenOffice/LibreOffice has always been a bit different to the Gnome desktop. I suspect this is because of the cross platform nature of the package, but I can't reference that at the moment.
