Actually, the full section is processed. It can be slow on very large
sections, indeed. Though, you could use a profiler (M-x profiler-start)
to check if something is suspicious.

Note that Org 8.3+ makes it a lot better with a cache mechanism, but it
is still buggy at the moment.

You could set it locally, in a hook (e.g., `org-mode-hook').
