They don't, they behave the same as Window, ApplicationCache, EventSource,
WebSocket, MessagePort, TextTrack, TextTrackCue, MediaStream, PeerConnection,
and indeed everything else until recently.

I don't understand why EventTarget is special here.

It's also imperative that they have the WorkerUtils stuff, but they don't
inherit from that either.
