No, really not.

Yes, ooops. That was not in the branch when I originally pushed it for review, 
and then I experimented with that setting and did a push -f.

I just proved they are not :-)

That is the very definition of “not self contained"

No. I did this experiment to get a feel of how close I was to the original 
style (assuming there really is one, which is not obvious from reading the

Not, it looks like it is not yet true ;-)

For instance, I noticed by doing this experiment that “Linux” is wrong, we want 
“Mozilla”. Also, I think we would need BinPackParameters: false. I experimented 
with the alignment to try to fix issues I was observing with the alignment of 
parameters, but as you point out, it also aligns decls. I personally like that, 
but that’s not what the style guide says.
