When all fields of a BF section are not editable by a given CB view, the rendered BF still shows the section header but with an empty body. Is there a way to turn off the section automatically in this case so it does not show up in the rendered BF?

unfortunately not by default due to performance issues that I see that could appear on the site.
But you can add this as workaround:

Go to form => advanced => scripts => initialization script => click custom => add the following code and replace FORMNAME, by the name of your form. Also add all fieldnames in the list that are included in the section that should disappear and enter the name of the section:
function ff_FORMNAME_init()
    var section_name = 'mysection';
    var fields       = ['fieldname1','fieldname2','fieldname3'];

    // do not change anything from here

    var fields_count = 0;
    var fields_in_section = fields;

    for( var x in bfDeactivateField ) {
        if( JQuery.inArray(x.replace('ff_nm_','').replace('[]',''), fields_in_section) != -1 ){

    if( fields_count != 0 ) {
       JQuery('#'+section_name).css('display', 'none');

This should turn off the desired section if all of the fields inside are off on form load.
