Bookmarks are implemented with markers, which do move with the
surrounding text. Did you try your cut and paste test with a marker in a
paragraph? The marker should move with it.

When you save them, they're saved as absolute positions in the file, but
even then some textual context is saved with them, to maximize the
changes that the bookmark can be restored correctly.
