I think I have some idea of what might be going wrong.

Create a ielm buffer with

    M-x ielm RET

and type out the following 4 lisp forms ONE-by-ONE.

(setq org-e-odt-zip-dir (file-name-as-directory (make-temp-file "odt-" t)))
(with-current-buffer (find-file-noselect (concat org-e-odt-zip-dir
"content.xml") t) (buffer-file-name))
(with-current-buffer (get-file-buffer (concat org-e-odt-zip-dir
"content.xml")) (save-buffer 0))
(get-file-buffer (concat org-e-odt-zip-dir "content.xml"))

In my case, the session looks like this.  Note that `ELISP>' you see
below is the command prompt.

    | *** Welcome to IELM ***  Type (describe-mode) for help.
    | ELISP> (setq org-e-odt-zip-dir (file-name-as-directory
(make-temp-file "odt-" t)))
    | "/tmp/odt-4998J4g/"
    | ELISP> (with-current-buffer (find-file-noselect (concat
org-e-odt-zip-dir "content.xml") t) (buffer-file-name))
    | "/tmp/odt-4998J4g/content.xml"
    | ELISP> (with-current-buffer (get-file-buffer (concat
org-e-odt-zip-dir "content.xml")) (save-buffer 0))
    | nil
    | ELISP> (get-file-buffer (concat org-e-odt-zip-dir "content.xml"))
    | #<buffer content.xml<5>>
    | ELISP>

In my case, the 3rd line also prints the following in messages buffer

    | Wrote /tmp/odt-4998J4g/content.xml

In your case, I suspect that the 3rd line will report an error and the
4th line will report a nil.  If this is true, then either my
understanding of `get-file-buffer' is incorrect or that
`get-file-buffer' is buggy.

Additional Note:

1. org-odt.el succeeds possibly because it doesn't use `get-file-buffer'
   at all.

2. Emacs is (confusingly) mangling filenames
