Unchecking that feature still had the <p class="calibre7">&nbsp;</p> inserted but the css changed the top and bottom margins to 0.

This would be great because this never added the extra <p class="calibre7">&nbsp;</p> before. It does now.

If so, the 'delete blank paragraphs' option in heuristics would detect and get rid of those.
I tried it with and without heuristics - Delete blank paragraphs, same result.

This is correct because the insert blank line option changes the top and bottom margins to 0.5em

I guess that's possible.

When I do that I now have an extra <div> tag but the rest is the same except now the top and bottom <p> margins are 0. The extra css wasn't added and the result is a gap between paragraphs about twice what it would be if the <p class="calibre7">&nbsp;</p> wasn't there.

Code:
<body class="calibre">  
  <div class="calibre5">
    <p class="calibre7">This book is for my wife, Danielle, with all my love for ever</p>
    <p class="calibre7">&nbsp;</p>
    <p class="calibre7">It had never been exposed to the light of day, not once in the 200 million years since it assumed its present form, and yet it seemed in itself to be a distilled drop of dirtied sunlight.</p>
    <p class="calibre7">&nbsp;</p>
    <p class="calibre7">it had been conceived in heat as vast as that of the sunís surface, in those unholy depths below the earthís crust, in the molten magma that welled up from the earthís very core.</p>
  </div>
</body>
As I stated to begin with I have no problem removing the <p class="calibre7">&nbsp;</p> lines using Sigil.
