FWIW, it doesn't seem to be working in 2015.3 either as per the docs.

How it's supposed to work?

I tried LW 2015.3 32 bit. With such weird object:

135551

135553

There is reaction from tool in Detail > Edges > More... > Extend Edges.

135552

Huh. Seems to work for me as documented in both 11.6.3 and 2015.3. With erikals's object, selecting the plane above in Polygon mode, switching to Edge mode and selected the side edges of the top of the box below, then using Detail=>Edges=>More...=>Extend Edges causes those edges to extend to the plane as I'd expect from the documentation.

With Sensei's wierd object, with no "target plane" selected in Polygon mode, it extends the selected edges to the Y=0 plane as documented in Step (4) in the manual. If I add a "target plane" above the wierd object, tilt it in varying degrees, then follow the steps in the 2015.3 manual, seems to work as documented, although the extended edges intersect in bizarre ways due to the non-parallel intersection with the target plane.

Dunno.

hm, running 11.6.2 over here (64bit), might be it... though not quite sure...

I finally got it to work BUT...

You have to select just the edge segments that are going to get extended & no more, otherwise you get odd but possibly interesting results.

hm, alright, i think it might be a 11.6.2 bug then... will have to check...
