* ox.el (org-export-to-file): `write-region' instead of  `write-file'.

* ox-odt.el (org-odt-template, org-odt--export-wrap): `write-region'
instead of `save-buffer'.

`write-file' and `save-buffer' trigger major mode changes, which leads
to various mode-related hooks being run.  This is undesirable: running
these on generated files is wasted time and computation, and it can even
lead to hard to track data corruption when auto-formatting hooks are
involved.  One such case is the 2006 version of the tidy program which
ships with stock macOS and can corrupt multi-byte UTF-8 codepoints in
HTML and ODT (via XML) exports.  And even recent versions of tidy can
re-arrange whitespace in the exported documents in unwanted ways.
