A picture isn't always editable... You cannot really re-edit a GIF, for

have the same result as if you had edited the original XCF and exported
it to GIF again.
“Save as…” means “save to a new file with a different name and/or format”.
“Export” means “put the contents of the current document in a file of a nature
this app isn’t intended to handle”. (At the same time “Import” means “bring
data from an alien file and convert it into what this app is intended to
handle”.) For instance, saving a spreadsheet to a text file or a word
processing document to a non-editable file format (PDF or picture). In the
Gimp, Export should be reserved for PDF, ASCII art or any other file type that
isn’t a picture.
