I've always thought it was so in the case of the elided text ending at
the a sentence and a period followed by a three-dot ellipsis in the case
of text beginning after a sentence being elided.
In other words, there is no such thing as a four-dot ellipsis, there are
just sentences, ending in periods as usual, with three-dot ellipses
replacing elided sections.
