Correct

But RC3 is final and the version info was unchanged. LibreOffice often does it like that.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

Indeed that appears to be so

Indeed that appears to be so - even the debs are packaged into an 'rc3' folder. You'd think that a release candidate wouldn't have any mention of 'rc' - if it was a release candidate - notwithstanding a lot of projects deprecating the conventional meaning of the term over the last few years.

Mentioned

They mention it in their release notes:

This release is bit-for-bit identical to the 3.5.0 Release Candidate 3, so you don't need to download or reinstall if you have that version already. Note that therefore, the about box states "LibreOffice 3.5.0 RC3".

It's good that it's in the release notes. When I say 'mention' I mean 'rc' should make no appearance in the shipped files.
