Exactly as you say, line breaking and pagination can create multiple rendering things for one element. 

When it is in fact broken between pages, is there any reason to refer as a separate singular concept to whatever thing would have been there if there weren't a page break?

   rendering tree thing
     This is often referred to as a "box". Except for display: none elements,
     which have none, and display: list-item elements, which have two, there
     is only one "thing" per source document element.
