Here is an example in the main app xaml:
<Setter Property="Padding" Value="0"/>
Controls like the Grid control as an example do not obey inheritance like this style with TargetType="Layout" even though the Grid itself is of type Layout.
I have checked this issue and I am also getting the same behavior.
Observation: When I set the TargetType property to "Layout" it is not working for layouts like stack layout, grid etc. but when I set the TargetType property to "StackLayout" it is working fine.

This is standard behavior for how Styles work, however you can now set ApplyToDerivedTypes to get the behavior you want.
