Kind of a hokie work-around, but for a test, I was able to do a "Copy" "Paste" when I was in the "Edit Sketch" mode of a Broken Out Section. When I hit "Paste", the sketch copied, but not in the exact same location. I had to grab the copy and move it around until it overlaid the original....
For what it's worth....
You will get a kick out of this. I tried editing the sketch (for the broken out section) and converting but it would disappear when I exited the sketch. So I edited the sketch and offset the sketch .001" and exited the sketch and it remained in the view. I changed the thickness and color (darker) just for the heck of it.
Edit:.. I see Kevin beat me to it. Plus a 0 offset is even better.
I was able to replicate the broken out sketch by offsetting it with a zero offset.
RC and select Edit Sketch.
Select the spline and click offset.
Change the offset amount to 0 and make sure "add dimension" is not checked, else it'll show up in the view.
I went back into the section sketch after the offset and I both moved the original and I reshaped it (2 independent edits).
The offset sketch maintained its associativity and redrew accordingly for each edit. Didn't even need a rebuild.
I've attached the part and drawing.

Thank you, this is exactly what I needed !
