Can page setup be performed on a section in Google Docs?

I create a document, and create a section break, then click File -> Page Setup, and click "apply to this section", but literally every option is greyed out so I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong.

Here is a sample Google Doc, with the section break options not appearing:

So far this is working as intended.

The description of the new feature only describes adjusting the margins either from the ruler or by using the Margin settings within Page setup.

  • Oh, that is surprising to me. Can you provide a link to the description?
