I'm not sure if you are labouring under a misapprehension due to poor
documentation, or reporting a bug here.

The STYLE directive adjusts the window styling of all windows which match the
specified class or window name, it shouldn't matter how the application which
created that window was started, be it from the XWin menu, from ~/.startxwinrc
or from a terminal.  If it does matter how the application was started, then
that is a bug.
