No, inheritance is definitely not affected by `display:contents`, and that's very intentional. Inheritance always runs thru the element tree, except for the one case it can't (anonymous boxes).  Pseudo-elements inherit from their originating element.

(Otherwise, how would `display: inherit` work?)
