I know. My project setup is just so extensive, and there are several problems that I'm trying to isolate since days…
I was hoping for an easy solution in this case.

I already learned that \setuplayout[grid=strut] makes more problems than it solves while fontfeature dimensions=strut is good; I should avoid frames in section titles (not necessarily, but it’s more controllable without); how to get more control over makeups and that columnsets are somewhat fastidious, esp. with floats…
Still open: this one, different behaviour of \blank in before vs. command, chapters always starting on left pages despite page=no (a side effect of the columnset, I guess), and floats, floats, floats.

But here we are:




\section{Rübenheimer Klimaschutz\-kommission interveniert wohlwollend.}
% It should break "Klimaschutz-komission" or put the whole word in the next line,
% but it keeps the first two words together.

\section{Ein Schwarzelf mit Gelatinewürfel zagt im Regen nie.}

\section{Die Donau\-dampfschifffahrts\-gesellschaft lädt zum Tanztee.}
