No, you are right: there's a subtlety here and another bug.
The subtlety is that having 'default' there is not a no-op: it resets
the :inverse-video attribute, and then "yellow" no longer affects the
background of the merged face. So to have the same happen during face
extension past EOL, you need to have all the components say ":extend t",
(insert (propertize "abc"
'((:background "green" :extend t)
( :inherit default :extend t)
( :inverse-video t
And the bug is that the above doesn't work in Emacs 27; I've just
installed a fix on master.
