If you select Formatted Text, pasted content will maintain the source text's format.

If you select Matching Current Format, pasted content will be in the format of the current text, at which the cursor is positioned.

If you select Unformatted Text, pasted content will be in plain text format without pictures and tables if the content you copy contains any picture or table.

Paste special

When you copy from certain source like the Internet or email client, you can get more paste options by selecting Paste Special.

Copy something from the Internet. In Writer, right-click the mouse and choose Paste Special. In the pop up window, you will see options like HTML Format and Unformatted Text. If you want to keep the source format, you can choose HTML Format. Please refer to the following picture:
