The next code produce a a6 format paper with pdflatex that fit well, but with lualatex the layout is a6 on a a4 paper sheet.

Passing a6paper option to geometry package doesn't solve the problem.

How have a correct papersize.



Hello word !

Geometry has not been updated for the changes in lualatex (where they removed some \pdf... variables). Add this before \documentclass:

    Is geometry not maintained anymore?

    If you load graphicx.sty and/or xcolor.sty before geometry.sty your MWE works as expected. Of course, you have to be using graphicx.sty and/or xcolor.sty in the first place ;)... (I use them practically all the time). So far, I have found no downside to this workaround.
