You said you read the sticky post, Read this before Posting PDF Questions, yet you still used PDF as a intermediate format? Let me repeat the first sentence from that sticky post, PDF format is the worst choice of source formats to use with Calibre.

Don't ever use PDF as a stepping stone to another format.

Try converting straight from ODT to ePub. If that doesn't do the trick you can save the ODT as a html document and try converting the html to ePub. Alternatively you can use the writer2epub plugin to save as a epub straight from Openoffice and if needed you can do a ePub to ePub conversion in calibre to set the cover, metadata or TOC as required.
