Those translate into Notes in OpenOffice. The notes are hard to see because they're small pale-yellow boxes in the text; however, they're easy to find using the Navigator. Expand the Notes category tree. Here, you can preview each note as a tool tip and double-click on a note to go to its location in the text.
For future reference, OOo 3.0 is slated to have a vastly improved version of Notes.
