Look here:


And to understand again the importance the save options in the editor:

"Save changes" saves an image derived from the original, if the option in the 
setup is disabled, the original image is hidden.
"Save as new image" saves an image derived from the original, but as a new 
branch, the original image is not hidden.

The BQM always creates a new branch, there is currently no setting in the BQM 
to change it.
