Do widgets, when used on the blog module, follow the save/save and publish conventions i.e. when you save, changes only get made to the draft site but when you save and publish, the changes get made to the live and the draft?

I am asking because I have edited my page.php file to allow widgets on all pages and have subsequently noticed that any changes that are made to the widget contents are published regardless of which option you selected.

If the blog module widgets do follow the convention above, what would I need to make it so that widgets on other pages also follow the convention?
If the blog module widgets don't, what changes would have to be made to make them follow when used on other pages? How difficult would it be to do?

Thanks in advance
