No, there's no "Selections" section called "Painting with GIMP":
II.7.1+2 ("Selection" and "Creating and Using Selections") are 
subsections of II.7 ("Painting with GIMP").
BTW, maybe we should merge 7.1 + 7.2...

Hmm, this would be logical.

Yes, but then (IMHO) this text had to be expanded, e.g. by stealing 
some stuff from the "Channels Dialog" chapter, adding examples and 
figures, etc.

And if/when we change it, we should also handle
        ("effect of deactivating RGBA channels"),

so ...

... I think we should do it later.
