He changes the whole page. In such situation MediaWiki is usually able
to merge the sections by itself, but each of them is a full page save.
It gets exposed in the fact that when there's an edit conflict, you will
get the whole page even if you were editing just a section. But really,
this is low-level stuff which the users shouldn't be concerned  with.
You can rename it to "Save text" if you want.
