This is equivalent to

     \set TabVoice.strokeFingerOrientations ...

since an override without context specification goes to a "Bottom"

Now you put the New_fingering_engraver into a _Staff_ context (quite an
unusual choice).  Usually it would be placed in TabVoice.

_Either_ putting the engraver into the TabVoice context _or_ doing the
setting as \set TabStaff.strokeFingerOrientations ... will do the trick.
Indeed, even doing both will work as an engraver inside of TabVoice can
see a setting in the enclosing TabStaff (unless overruled in the
TabVoice context itself).  But settings in TabVoice are invisible to an
engraver at TabStaff level.
