I do not think you're misreading the HTML spec. The intention was that the value of `dir` default to the direction of the parent element. This allows a document to set RTL at a higher level (such as, ultimately, on the document element) and have it cascade down to children--such that the page author doesn't have to set every single block element's `dir`.

So I think the problem here is the wording in the test description.
