I received a malicious Word document with detections on VirusTotal, but it does not exhibit malicious behavior in a sandbox.

That's because it's buggy:

The malware author must have executed a search and replace for string "pl" by string "Jklcj2HIUCh" to obfuscate the function and variable names a bit, without noticing "unwanted" replacements leading to the corruption of the TripleDES COM object name.

The dropped payload is an .inf file that downloads a scriptlet:
