No. I understand your problem now.
The rectangle selection you made is constraining painting during the
stroking of the selection., just like any other selection would. If
you want the stroking to disregard the selection when applying paint,
you are better off converting the selection to a path then stroking
the path (with no selection active).
To illustrate -- use the paths tool to create a rectangle, and stroke
that path. The resultant stroking should display exactly the same
appearance as your freehand rectangle.
