Comment by Marc Sabatella:

I was out a while and am finally getting caught up I believe this is indeed a bug. I could see the algorithm needing to consider the whole measure (it is mostly a "horizontal" algorithm, looking at preceding / following notes, not a "vertical" one), but it shouldn't alter what comes before. And it definitely shouldn't alter the previous measure. Looks like it is actually always doing the entire score. Looking at the sourc,e it seems no effort whatsoever is made to look at the selection.

I'd encourage you to submit this as an official bug report via Help / Report a Bug (set Severity to Major).

Title when i select a chord and choose respell pitches the previous (and unselected) chord is respelled. is this a known bug? "Respell pitches" should only work on the selection, if there is any

Only if there is no selection it might work on the entire score
