It's seems logical that a property you set for some object dominates an equivalent inherited property. It could not work otherwise, and it is the same at any level. So you have to kill the chunk properties (by replacing the formatted text by plain text) to actualise the field properties (which can be set before or after the kill)...

put the text of fld "X" into fld "X"
set the textstyle of fld "X" to "bold"


set the textstyle of fld "X" to "bold"
put the text of fld "X" into fld "X"
