The original text is unchanged, you just added something at the end of
the file.  So markers at positions 4 and 5 will be preserved, yes.

AFAIU, the problem with the epa case is that the buffer is erased and
the text re-inserted.  Isn't that the case?

In any case, how can insert-file-contents know what the handler did
wrt which part(s) of the buffer remained unchanged?

Of course.
