My first introduction to LaTeX was in 1997, and I've never looked back!

comment Extented titles for subsections gets my TOC all pilled-up
There are a number of posts that deal with this: Numbers too close to figure captions in List of Figures, can this be fixed without changing the class?; List of figures: numbers overlap image caption; Adjusting spaces for the ToC. Perhaps the best (canonical) answer would be to look at How to modify the indentation before sectioning titles in the table of contents?.

Are you using fancyhdr at all? One may be able to tap into LaTeX's marks to gauge whether placement of a background image should be done or not.

That's exactly my point that this is easier for \chapters, but may require some tweaking for sections.

Could you test it with a case where the section is started on page X, but it pushed to the top of page X+1 and see whether the conditioning still works? In your pictured example, progressively add some text before the start of Section 2 and see what happens...

Conditioning on \value{section} doesn't seem accurate here. I may be wrong though...

comment Background image used for a whole section/chapter at once
Yes. One section could finish with another starting on the same page. In such cases, would you place a background image or not? So, for example, would you place a background image on ALL pages where you have section X? This will never happen with a chapter (typically).

comment Background image used for a whole section/chapter at once
There is a minor difference between a per-section and per-chapter image. The former (section) has no page break between them, while there is typically a clear separation (like a page break) between the latter/chapters. Therefore, adding a background image on a per-chapter basis would be easier than doing it on a per-section basis.
