First up, it's because it used to work and now it doesn't. ;]

Second it can be very useful to work on a sub-buffer, or indirect
buffer for some content. Why shouldn't I be able to edit the contents
of that block inside an indirect buffer where my beginning-of-buffer,
end-of-buffer, word wrap, or global find and replace are constrained
to that block of text?

This works for example blocks, but no longer for verse and quote
blocks. These are native Org block types and not my fanciful made up
ones. Why should the popup work for example blocks, but not the
others? That borders on a bug, where my question was considered as a
configuration question.

Finally when you edit in the popup buffer, the results are indented
which makes the document more legible. Regular text tools do that

I think what I am using were once called "special blocks". You're
referring to source blocks. They have many more features but are
outside the question.
