This is an issue that has existed in WordPress prior to FSE, when a front page PHP template or widget based homepages were used in themes.

The issue appears more egregious however, now that FSE is intended to allow editing of all portions of the site.

If I have a static page set to the front page of the site, my expectation is that clicking "Edit Page" in the admin bar would take me to the page that displays that content. Instead, when a theme has a front page template, I am seeing content that will not display on the actual site frontend.

My suggestion is some form of notice to the user that they are not editing in the actual place that content is displayed. They could also be taken directly to the front page template of the "Edit Site" portion of the dashboard.

I imagine that there would be a variety of edge cases to work around here, as well as related issues such as opening the editor to the proper template, as suggested in #56246
