Word 16.16.13 creates folders when saving DOCX documents with Mac OS Mojave 10.14.5 on a Synology Nas when the file is edited and resaved. These folders can only be deleted after a restart.

How do I "Disable QuickLook integration for Office entirely" for testing?
Ron Curtis commented
Thanks for reporting this issue. It’s a known issue with cleaning up folders on AFP/SMB shares that we are in communication with Apple on. In the mean time there are a few work arounds you could try to help mitigate the problem.
1. Disable QuickLook integration for Office entirely.
2. Close Finder, or navigate it to some other drive other than the document being edited.

Experiencing the same issue with a number of customers.

My users have been experiencing this issue for a long time over a variety of macOS and Office for Mac versions. We are running a Windows File Server as a Hyper-V VM in Windows Server 2016. Users connect via AFP, which is serviced by Acronis Files Connect (formerly ExtremeZ-IP).

Happens with Word 16.32 on Mojave 10.14.6 to an Isilon smb share as well. A folder with the file name suffixed with some pseudo random characters like .sb-84cd2327-Cg2Vc3 is created (note this is not unique to Word but for some reason Word appears to be particularly bad about cleaning up)
