Really? Like what?

Yeah, logically I suppose so, if it can be seen through the  
'additional background image'. What are the circumstances in which an  
author would use background-image, border-radius, and border-image  
together on the same element (especially given that border-image has a  
built-in background image in its middle)? I can see that maybe I would  
use border-radius as a fallback for background-image (or vice versa).  
In those cases, I would not any of the original border to show when  
the border image was showing instead. And the background-image might  
have a more complex clipping than the rounded border.
