There is no target audience for text too small to read. It's a bug.
It's not a bug on my system (LO 5.2.5.1 on sid/Xfce4) because my Base
windows look like other windows, in terms of font size. That's not a
problem I've ever had with it. It may be an artefact of your window
manager and whatever graphics toolbox is in use.

Yes, LibreOffice and especially Base is buggy. You will use it if, even
with the bugs, you find it to be overall more useful than anything else
for some of your purposes, just as I do. Once this bug is fixed...
