According to Latex manual, "Unlike the center environment, the \centering command does not start a new paragraph". However the converted does generate a new paragraph.
In the attached example the usage of \centering in the middle of a paragraph is rather uncommon. It just illustrates the point.
More realistically, \centering is often used as the first directive in 'picture' environment. In this case the converter unnecessary creates a new paragraph of 'centerpar' style, ending the picture paragraph. The latter does occupy some space.
