Can you confirm that adding the above fonts to your system, i.e.
# mkdir /usr/share/fonts/thai
# cp [fontfiles] /usr/share/fonts/thai
# fc-cache -f -v

After following the above steps (after installing thai fonts:
. . .
fc-cache: "/usr/share/fonts/thai/TTF": caching, 27 fonts, 0 dirs
. . .)
OOo shows content for the thai text correctly too => NOT A BUG.
