Yes?
Same link you gave had this below what your were referencing.

The exception is when they occur in the value of the font-size property itself, in which case they
refer to the computed font metrics of the parent element (or the computed font metrics corresponding
to the initial values of the font property, if the element has no parent).

For example:

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml"><head>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">
<title>Untitled Document</title>
</head>
<body style="font-size:100%;">
	<div>
		<div style="font-size:10px;">
			<div style="font-size:20px;">
				<p style="font-size:1em;">em</p>
			</div>
		</div>
		<div style="font-size:15px;">
			<div>
				<p style="font-size:1em;">em</p>
			</div>
			<div style="font-size:0.5em;">
				<div>
					<p style="font-size:2em;">em</p>
				</div>
			</div>
		</div>
		<div>
			<p style="font-size:1em;">em</p>
		</div>
	</div>
</body>
</html>
