No, by default all directives are inherited from previous levels.  
The only exceptions are:

- location content handlers (proxy_pass, fastcgi_pass, scgi_pass, 
  uwsgi_pass, memcached_pass, empty_gif, stub_status, mp4, flv, 

- rewrite directives (if, rewrite, break, return);

- try_files.

In most cases this is more or less obvious when directives are not 
inherited, though docs can be a bit more clear on this.
