See these posts.


If Org is run from Vanilla Emacs then setting then setting that to
`org-odt-data-dir' to nil should work (I think).

The primary consumer of `org-odt-data-dir' is a package distributor who
distributes a STANDALONE org.  He can set this variable to the location
in the file system where he has dumped the styles file.
