A good question. I feel the current behaviour (of Safari / Chrome. Firefox is ancient) generally works as I expect esp. in terms of particles and words that has an inflection. They are units when I edit text for improvements.

I once in a while frustrated by compound Kanji words. They typically dissect them in smallest chunks but often the unit I want to edit / replace it the whole compound word. English has the same issue however with compound words. City of “Palo Alto” is two words however they are inseparable. “Palo Alto town hall” is four words, etc. Only the difference is that word boundaries are not visible (+ ambiguities) in Japanese text.
