comment Hidden parent stylesheet?
...So the lack of reference to default in your example means nothing because there is still the default setting in your options inspector

comment Hidden parent stylesheet?
ok i see what you mean. there is always a default stylesheet. For example if you open a new notebook then edit the stylesheet and delete the reference to default.nb that doesn't mean you have no underlying styles. You will have default style definitions which you can find in the option inspector. For me my default is my own custom stylesheet so when I start with a default notebook (white) and then delete the ref to default stylesheet the notebook immediately changes to a yellowish background (my personal default).

comment Hidden parent stylesheet?
don't understand your follow up question. This is defined in the default stylesheet. Whenever you switch to slideshow screen environment the docked cell appears as per stylesheet specification. local settings override global settings. you have made specific local settings for the notebook with use the inherited (global) value (i.e. FEPrivateFrontEndResource["FEExpressions", "SlideshowToolbar"]) for slideshows. So for me this does what is expected.

comment Hidden parent stylesheet?
it comes from the style environment definition: Cell[StyleData[All, "SlideShow", StyleDefinitions -> StyleData[All, "Presentation"]], PageWidth->WindowWidth, DockedCells->FEPrivate`FrontEndResource["FEExpressions", "SlideshowToolbar"], ScrollingOptions->{"PagewiseDisplay"->True, "VerticalScrollRange"->Fit}, ShowGroupOpener->False, MenuSortingValue->1300]

comment DynamicModule issues with Refresh, double evaluation, and CDF Player preview
@Edmund it is not odd. If you have a semi colon then the code is not displayed and dynamic only updates pixels that are displayed. Instead of multiplying a Dynamic by Column bring it into the Column
