I agree with that statement. But after the merge and a commit to the
branch, then a subsequent merge shouldn't create the same patch because
there shouldn't be any differences unless they were due to changes on
the branch.

I apologize if I'm sounding harsh or otherwise annoying. I'm just trying
again to understand how merging works so I can then explain to others in
my group if we ever get to the point of using Subversion as our code
config tool. It will be a hard sell in any case.
