After checking, you are correct. My issue is indeed related to
auto-fill-mode. And I have discovered that M-q cleans up my wrapping after
my text editing.

I'm new to emacs and would have thought line wrapping from such edits would
occur automatically. Regardless, M-q is much more efficient that manually
cleaning up. Thank you.
