If it's helpful, here's some history on Save and save_as in configdialog.

Item: Code change which added the lines to always save 'highlight' and 'keys'.

November 16, 2004, commit 5acdf9308191b6356fb3ed4ba691ba5cd391f202

commit message:
 Saving a Keyset w/o making changes (by using the "Save as New Custom …

…Key Set"

button) caused IDLE to fail on restart (no new keyset was created in
config-keys.cfg).  Also true for Theme/highlights.  Python Bug 1064535.

Item: Code change to always save 'main' first.  Not much information, but seems to be part of the handling of the help source changes.

March 26, 2002  commit 0c5bc8c9518fd18d41aedede536c4a9aa8dfa619 

Commit message:  further work on new config system;
