In real life farming:
if paddocks are field areas delimited by a fence, then
** share a common fence
** their areas do not overlap
Having two adjacent paddocks (WD35C and WD35D) I wanted to test if editing paddock C’s Southern corner post (black dot), which is shared between C and D, would also change the shape of paddock D.
It did not.
It increased the area of C without reducing the area of D, resulting in an unnatural overlap.

light blue area: overlapping area
yellow solid lines: current paddocks boundaries
Note: overlapping would be acceptable for other type of assets such as structures (for example, a roof structure covering a through)
