if someone has, say, 12 sections with linked documents in her/his document...
(a pretty usual scenario, I guess, someone editing a paper/publication/anything with multiple contributors)
and one of the linked documents in a section has been modified,
now the only way to "refresh" the "mother document" is to go tools/update/links..
and this means updating ALL linked documents...
it is purely a waste of working power
having a context menu item, under "edit section",
say, "update this section" could come very-very handy...
even when someone works with only 2 sections!
cause updating only 1 instead of 2 is a 100% speed and effeciency improvement :)
sure, when approaching the "update links" through "tools/update", there is no identification of where the cursor is at...
that's why the context menu could be a great improvement...
cause the section in question is already identified...
so this suggestion does not only "moves" an available menu-item to the context menu, but also utilizes the context, so to speak :)

Control probably belongs on the Format -> Sections menu more so than context menu for specific section. Allowing selection of the Section(s) to be refreshed.
But sure, it would be convenient to directly update the LO instance of a section when source document has been updated, without needing to refresh all links.
It works with a master document where the Navigator allows to Update > Selection via context menu (as well as Indexes, Links and All). A UNO command "Update section" that comes under Edit section in the context menu would be desirable. And perhaps also the "Update" button in the sections dialog. Perhaps next to the section selector that might become a bit smaller.
