Calling 'org-babel-mark-block' with 'M-x cmd' and 'M-: (cmd)'

Hi List, 

this was posted and discussed on the Org-mode mailing list, but without
any real conclusion if it is a Bug in Emacs - or something else. So it
was suggested to repost it here. 

Say point is behind the closing parenthesis of the sexp in this Org-mode source

| #+begin_src emacs-lisp
| (+ 3 4)          # point behind sexp
| #+end_src

Now, when I call

| M-x org-babel-mark-block RET


| M-x org-mark-element RET

the body of the source block (or the whole source-block) is (visibly)
marked as expected (transient-mark-mode is on), and 'M-w' puts the
active region into the kill-ring. 

But with the point at the same position, doing

| M-: (org-babel-mark-block) RET


| M-: (org-mark-element) RET

moves point to the beginning of source-block (body) and returns the
position of point without (visibly) marking the source-block body.
There is no region activated, 'M-w' puts nothing in the kill-ring.
