If they need to use again this kind of flight numbers, they can do it easily.

BRU summer topic :
As from 1st of July, flights of Nordica from TLL are now operated by LOT and no more by Nordica.

Flight numbers are the same.

That would be interesting to see LOT aircraft (except CR7&9) at TLL.
LOT took over Nordica routes, as mentionned above a few weeks ago.
I knew that, I posted it first in this thread myself.

But the real question is, why do they go through the trouble of changing the flight numbers?
It's not such a big deal I guess. If you look at SN, they use flight numbers starting with 8 for code-share flights operated by others (e.g. SN8803 for the United flight UA973 to Chicago).
By the change of number, maybe LOT wants to emphasize that it is now their own operation, even though the planes are Nordica.

Nordica discontinued flying on its five remaining routes — from Tallinn to Kyiv, Copenhagen, Trondheim, Vienna and Vilnius — until the competition situation has improved. Services to Stockholm, Brussels and Warsaw were taken over by LOT Polish Airlines in July 2019.
