Yes, i notice that too.

It certainly isn't GTK.

No, you can specify styles for individual widgets just like with
true Xt applications.  Application developers are supposed to
assign their widget's name with gtk_widget_set_name().  As long
as Emacs sets its menubar widgets to be named something like
"emacs-menubar" something like this should do what you want:

style "emacs-menubar-font" { font = "blah" }
widget emacs-menubar style "emacs-menubar-font"
