Pardon? The question was:

When section (with h3 heading) contains a subsection (with h4 heading),
then some of the subsections must be the last one, and the next heading,
if any, is either an h3 heading (if there are more sections in the current
chapter) or an h2 heading (if the section was the last one in the current
chapter). Thus, an h4 heading can surely be followed by an h2 heading.
