It's also mentioned in 10.3.9:

   When a table, thead, tbody, tfoot, tr, td, or th element has a
   background attribute set to a non-empty value, the new value is
   expected to be resolved relative to the element, and if this is
   successful, the user agent is expected to treat the attribute as a
   presentational hint setting the element's 'background-image' property
   to the resulting absolute URL.

Seems like that pretty clearly defines the browser behavior.
