The text in the textarea is also not updated in this case, so it's expected that added sections aren't listed.

As far as MediaWiki is concerned, edits made with an external editor are completely detached from any other edit forms you may be looking at in your browser. When you're editing the same page in two different tabs and save one version, it's also logical that the second tab doesn't magically detect this and update its NTOC (which might not even be possible, due to conflicting changes). External editors are no different from having another tab with an edit form open.
