I have always had those two settings enabled for the last two years. First it removes spaces and adds the indent then it changes the top and bottom margin to 0.5em to give a space between paragraphs. Since my eyes are older this is how I prefer my books to be formatted.

The whole LIT document created paragraphs internally by having blank lines between each paragraph. If this was text I believe either Single or Block would have worked. I tried heuristics on with delete blank line checked and ended up with the same results.

IIRC previously if the text in the <pre> tags in a lit file (or text in a txt file) had the paragraphs separated by a blank line those paragraphs would end up in <p> tags and no extra lines with non-breaking spaces were created between those paragraphs. At what point does the <p class="calibre7">&nbsp;</p> get inserted? It isn't from the insert blank line under look & feel because that just changes the top and bottom margin on the main paragraphs.

Checking Remove spacing between paragraphs w/indent 1.1em and Insert blank lines is like using the following in extra css. I consistently end up with my main paragraphs setup with these settings.

Code:
p {margin-top:0.5em; margin-bottom:0.5em; text-indent:1.1em}

Thanks for this info I may experiment with these settings.

Bottom line: At what point does the <p class="calibre7">&nbsp;</p> get inserted and why?
