Correct. That's what I was trying to say.
Maybe the text should be:
 # In CSS, the content of an <img> or a background image
  # must always in an isolated group. For instance, if you link to an SVG
file
  # through the ‘img’ tag, the content of that SVG will not blend with
  # the backdrop of the img element.

I haven't thought about <object> or <iframe>...

That's a good question.
When we incorporate PDF documents into applications like InDesign, that pdf
will always render in an isolated group.
The reason is that people consider placed artwork a separate piece of
content and they don't want it to interact with content outside of that
document. I was just applying the same logic.

I think it will be very confusing if that wouldn't be the case.
