} Er, on 3.0 it seems that the mark is initially set to the start of the line,

I thought I was seeing that behavior at one point, but now I can't get it
to happen again (... some fooling about occurs ...)

Aha!  Whenever you use a history operation like ^P, the mark gets set at
the beginning of the line before the new history line is inserted.  So
you can't mix that bindkey -s with other history motions unless you set
the mark yourself in between.  If all you do is type the prefix and then
press up-arrow, it works fine.
