These commands are enabled in previously generated creative mode-worlds.
While using commands, the world around the player is frozen, unlike in multiplayer.

Notable bugs (Complete bug list):
Even with "Allow Cheats" turned off in Single Player, you can still use the commands.
Bonus Chests have a chance of spawning inside nearby tree leaves at world creation. The chest is destroyed but the items remain inside the leaves.
Even with Bonus Chest enabled, a "Bonus Chest" will not spawn in the seed walruswalruswalrus.
