It does if "some-stuff" element is in the shadow DOM.

By inside <x-foo>, do you mean inside the shadow DOM of the x-foo? (1)
Or outside the shadow DOM but as an immediate child of the x-foo element? (2)

For (1), yes (@font-face rules inside shadow DOM would affect) since its parent element is in the shadow DOM.
For (2), no since its parent element is not in the shadow DOM.

I understand this is confusing for authors but no more so than inherited vs. non-inherited properties.
If the author specified "color" and "background-color" inside a shadow DOM,
only "color" will be inherited to a slotted element by default.
