Oh, ok.

If the behavior of `display: contents` were to act like `display: none` when `object` is a replaced element but render the children when `object` is showing fallback, then the end result would depend on which happens first: loading of the resource vs. applying the style. If it's first loaded, then the end result would be display: none. If the style is applied first, then the `object` element doesn't generate a box, so it's not "being rendered", and thus doesn't load anything, but continues to render the children.
