Sounds like both. And LaTeX's standard document classes are designed
to allow (and even require) hyphenation in both.
The answer is to use a better documentclass than the demonstration versions
that are packed with latex. I suggest memoir or scr*.
It is so incredibly bad to format section titles with big fonts and
flush margins, that one can speculate that it is *intentionally* bad,
to encourage people to customize their documents.

Section titles should *always* be ragged (right or center).
