Tested your minimal example. Got no bold font for me.

Can you find all instances of Linux Libertine on your computer and 
rename them to .backup (or whatever) except for your preferred instance 
of the open type font.

Then rehash your tex-distribution / font-config, (Depends on distribution)
and recompile the document again?
