Yes, it should.

As you point out, in both cases the algorithm knows that there should be
a blank line before the new entry (with the assumption that behaviour is
set to `auto'). In the first case, if it inserts the headline at point,
there will be none, so it has to add one. In the second case, there is
no need to add one since creating it at point will fulfill the
requirement (which is "a blank line before new headline").

Re-reading myself, I agree that my quoted explanations are a bit
confusing. I hope this should clarify my point.
