A video wouldn't help. In order to implement this, one would have to
know exactly how "Photoshop somehow guesses what it should use as source
material". Of course if someone has solved the problem you outlined
above, then we would be happy to help him/her to implement it as a GIMP

No. It is pointless to keep an enhancement request for something that
doesn't have a known solution. It would even be a waste of developers
time since this bug would only make our long list of feature requests
even longer.
