After making an update to a Jive document with the "Minor edit, don't show document modification in streams or email" option enabled, the document followers still received a notification.
This article provides more information about this issue.
This issue, in Jive Cloud, was analyzed by the Engineering Team and they concluded that this is functioning as designed.
This is because removing this notification has the unwanted effect of also removing it from the activities list.
If for any reason the design is now required to be changed, then that would need to be taken up via a feature request accordingly for all affected object types for this scenario.
