I think you have been misled by the confusing labelling of that button. 
With the non-destructive editing and versioning enabled you have two 
choices, Save or Save as new version. When you choose Save, the current 
state of the image is saved but you can of course go back to previous 
versions due to the non-destructive editing. But you only see the latest 
version by default. I think that this is the behaviour that you actually 
Whereas Save as new version, will always give you a new view of that 
image as well as the previous view. So every time you use that button 
you are telling Digikam that you want to see the previous version of the 
image as well as the new version.
