I verified that if run from a script, the card will clone in the stack the script is running in. Otherwise it will clone in the stack the source card is in regardless of the topStack. Odd implementation if you ask me. I often need to create a new substack, then clone a card from another substack to save a lot of time copy pasting objects. Heretofore I've been unable to do that, but now I know, just place a button on card 1 of the new stack.
