I tested this and it seems that even if I set different validation groups for different elements and submit buttons, it still submits everything. I will need to confirm that this is a bug with the person who developed this, unfortunately he is out of the office. On Monday I will be able to either confirm this as a bug or have more information on how to use it properly.
All the best,
the Telerik team
