Would this be a good summary?

    If the target is a control within a group
    then the path includes the groups
    it is within (inner to outer) followed by the card.

    If the target is not within a group (including the card)
    then the path includes the card followed by all background groups
    that are immediately owned by the card from high layer to low.
