Displacement vectors and linearised angles vectors from local finite element frame to rotated global frame

$s=R\tilde{s}$ is fine, but why $\theta=R\tilde{\theta}$? Namely: why vectors of linearised rotations $\theta_i$ and $\theta_j$ (at nodes $I$ and $j$ respectively) are rotated like they were vector ...
