So `elem.querySelector('...')` is defined in https://dom.spec.whatwg.org/#dom-parentnode-queryselector, it runs [scope-match a selectors string](https://dom.spec.whatwg.org/#scope-match-a-selectors-string) `'...'` against `elem`. This basically sets `elem` as the scoping root when matching.

And since the `:scope` elements are not explicitly specified, but the selector is scoped and the scoping root is the element `elem`, then `elem` matches `:scope` (and nothing else matches).

It's basically the same for `querySelectorAll`: https://dom.spec.whatwg.org/#dom-parentnode-queryselectorall

For [`matches`](https://dom.spec.whatwg.org/#dom-element-matches), the element is used as the `:scope` element but not as the scoping root.
