As best I can tell, it looks like Sage is doing the chain rule here. So, it is treating laplace(y,t,s) as a symbol and gives the derivative w.r.t. x as D0*D0. Taking the second derivative gives something that looks like the product rule and the chain rule were used.

I think Sage is using Maxima to do this. So, this might be an issue with how Maxima handles partial derivatives of Laplace transforms.

As best I can tell, it looks like Sage is doing the chain rule here. So, it is treating ~~laplace(y,t,s) ~~`laplace(y,t,s)`

as a symbol and gives the derivative w.r.t. x as ~~D0*D0~~`D[0](laplace(y,t,s))*D[0](y(x,t))`

. Taking the second derivative gives something that looks like the product rule and the chain rule were used.
