Right, but these are only for the current-buffer/selected-window,
whereas the example modifies another window (and another buffer), so
they first need to be considered (via [bwf]set_redisplay) before
anything else will look at them.

No.  If it were the wset_redisplay you added would have been a no-op.

Oh, wait I see it now.  We do test if point changed, in

  if (!just_this_one_p
      && REDISPLAY_SOME_P ()
      && !w->redisplay
      && !f->redisplay
      && !buffer->text->redisplay
      && BUF_PT (buffer) == w->last_point)

So indeed changing point ends up doing the moral equivalent of bset_redisplay.
