Of course not, it jumps there in one go.

At EOB.

Right, and that's when redisplay kicks in, which invokes JIT Lock.

Not necessarily.  Sometimes, this cannot be avoided.  More thorough
analysis is needed to determine whether it's really bad code.

See above.  Redisplay is separate from command execution.  So yes, we
are already at EOB, and then redisplay happens.

Because we moved there with end-of-buffer.
