I had no problems installing LibreOffice 7.2.x on a fresh Windows 10 install updated to 20H2. LO 7.1.x was a different story.

I stand corrected. LibreOffice 7.2.x couldn't install overtop of LO 7.1.x on 20H2 unless I used the "Run as" trick. That was because it couldn't uninstall 7.1.x.

It's possible that "Run As" would allow 7.1 to install and work on 20H2 and 21H1. But I did not test that.

I'm thinking that going to 21H1 might not have been a good idea. What I forgot is that the Windows Update points to a church server. Until that church server starts supporting 21H1, you might not be getting any automatic security updates.

At least, I'm not getting any automatic updates from this last Patch Tuesday. I have to click the "check Microsoft" link. That might mean that I'll be stuck doing security updates manually for awhile.

I also noticed that the Software Center is supporting deployment of LibreOffice 7.1.6.2 x64

You might try running CMD.com "As administrator" and then running the LibreOffice installer from CMD.
That actually worked, I was getting pessimistic but have a new outlook on life now. :) These machines are finally ready to deploy.
