[O] Weird Headline Behavior

I've been noticing some unusual behavior when I manipulate headlines (Org 9.2).

I have the following (or something similar) at the very end of many Org files:

# Local Variables:
# mode: org
# coding: utf-8-unix
# End:

If I copy this subtree (C-c C-x M-w) and then yank it (C-c C-x C-y) into into 
the same file or another file, only the headline is yanked, the rest of the 
subtree is not.

In addition, if I decide to delete a different headline in the file (C-c C-x 
C-w) while the LOCAL VARIABLES headline is folded, then this appears on the 

* LOCAL VARIABLES...# Local Variables:
# mode: org
# coding: utf-8-unix
# End:

I don't know if these facts are relevant or not, but this behavior happens when 
org-indent-mode is both on and off, and I have org-tags-column set to 0.

The folding behavior is not big deal since S-TAB or something similar corrects 
everything, but it is inconvenient to have to use regular copy and yank 
commands when I want to copy the subtree to a different file. Can anyone 
provide some insight into this?
