Ah. I misunderstood the doc string, then. Can we improve the docstring
and find another way to say "underlying face"? The word underlying
doesn't appear in the Elisp manual index. When I read your answer I
thought that underlying faces are the faces are the faces I inherit
from. But when I look at (elisp) Face Attributes I see the following:

     The name of a face from which to inherit attributes, or a list of
     face names.  Attributes from inherited faces are merged into the
     face like an underlying face would be, with higher priority than
     underlying faces.  If a list of faces is used, attributes from
     faces earlier in the list override those from later faces.

Apparently there is a difference between inheritance and underlying
that I don't understand.
