By that I mean it is invisible to magic words. {Y BU} would constitute an
exception.

Because sticking with words creates conflicts when more than one
magic word vie for the same word. Taking the whole magic word construct
as an "honorary word" for other magic words solves all those conflicts.
If {bu} can act on a preceding {a bu} and turn that into a lerfu, there
is no reason why it can't similarly not act on {zo a} or on {a zei e} or
on {lo'u a le'u}. The reason these are special constructs is
just that they involve magic words. Instead of saying that {bu} fails
because other magic words have already staked a claim the word it should
change into a lerfu, we say that what it changes into a lerfu is the
previous word or magic-word-construct.
