Just to test it, I now replaced the \DeclareFieldFormat definition and deleted all problematic citekeys. Now, when I create a (X)HTML file, validator.w3.org only complains about two errors which are both related to the strange numbers in the end. A <p> tag is opened and never closed. No idea where this comes from. There’s also a warning concerning the doctype, but I don’t think this is relevant.

Still, when I try to create a .odt file, I still see the same behavior. So whatever makes oolatex break, it wasn’t these two things.
