If it was 500px then it would overflow the #outer which seems a little
weird since the intent of min-content is to size the block such that it has
no overflow.

As another example:

<div style="width: 1000px;">
    <div id=outer style="width: min-content;">
        <div id=inner style="width: fill-available;"><div
style="display:inline-block; width: 100px"></div></div>
    </div>
</div>

In this case the author probably intended the fill-available to take up all
the space inside of the min-content container without overflowing.
