Ah, no, you misunderstand how Subversion does commits. It only commits things
that have changed; for a directory, a change to one of its children does NOT
mean the directory has changed.

So although you asked Subversion to commit "wc", it scanned that sub-tree but
only committed the node "wc/foo", not "wc" itself. (To get "wc" itself up to
date, you have to issue a separate "svn update" command.)

Yes, where "committed" means "was sent to the repository, because it had
changed in itself", not just "was considered for committing".
