man page says:

     url2pkg takes the URL to a package's distfile that should be turned into
     a package.  It fetches the distfile, extracts it, and by looking at the
     extracted files, fills in some variables in the package Makefile.

which is different from what you just said.

If there's truly a "you edit some and save and then it changes it more"
it would be nice to explain that.
