If foo is displayed in a window, it has 2 points: its own and the one of
the window.

It does stay there.  Try

     (with-current-buffer "FOO"
       (goto-char (point-max))
       (insert "bar"))
     (with-current-buffer "FOO"

No, it's just that the window's point gets copied to the buffer's point,
probably during redisplay.

Of course,
