It seems that this leads too much redundant work.

I’m not the developer of iedit. I find a comment in the function 
iedit-update-occurrences-2:

                ;; todo: reconsider this change Quick fix for
                ;; multi-occur occur-edit-mode: multi-occur depend on
                ;; after-change-functions to update original
                ;; buffer. Since inhibit-modification-hooks is set to
                ;; non-nil, after-change-functions hooks are not going
                ;; to be called for the changes of other occurrences.
                ;; So run the hook here.
