[Presumably module b imports module a.]

If the example were

a.xq:   declare function f() as xs:string { fn:static-base-uri() }
b.xq:   f()

we'd expect "a.xq", wouldn't we? I'm not sure why the first example is
different. In both cases, the built-in function is referenced from module a, so
that determines the static context that it's evaluated against when it's
