I think not, and IIC, this should not be the case.
Nevertheless, I recently bumped into precisely that effect when nesting
block-containers: the inner block-container would inherit the value of the
outer block-container, and thus be rotated another 90 degrees relative to the
outer b-c reference-area.
In the case you present, the region-body is rotated by 90 degrees. So, the
flow-reference-area will be rotated by 90 degrees with respect to the
page-reference-area. The block-container, having reference-orientation 0
relative to the flow-reference-area, will also be rotated by 90 degrees
relative to the page.

Result: with normal A4 dimensions (210x297), we will get a portrait page, with
both Text1 and Text2 appearing below each other in the page's lower-left
corner, rotated by the same amount wrt the page.
