Because these are _background_ images.  Ones specified in CSS at that.  They 
aren't loaded by an HTMLImageElement.  The only context available is the 
document the CSS was parsed for.

Which isn't an error.  The documentation for aContext clearly says:

165    * @param aContext          OPTIONAL. the nsIDOMNode or nsIDOMWindow that
166    *                          initiated the request, or something that can QI

which is exactly what you're getting -- a document QIs to nsIDOMNode...  Note 
that per DOM spec the ownerDocument of a Document node is null.

Now _that_ sounds wrong...  I can see it happening if the relevant document is 
no longer being shown in a window or not yet being shown in a window, but that 
shouldn't be the case here, since these images should be getting fetched after 
layout has started, so definitely when the document has a window already.
