The (:noleft:) directive instructs the skin to disable the sidebar. This 
directive is in the wiki text source of the page.

The source is evaluated when the action is "browse" (or none).

When the action is "edit", "diff", "upload" or other, the wiki source 
text is not processed or evaluated. (It is processed when the action is 
"edit" and "Preview" was pressed.)

Correct, it says: "when processing wikitext to HTML, if a directive 
(:noleft:) is encountered, disable the sidebar".

Yes, it is expected, probably under-documented.
