If I correctly understand what you are describing, I think it depends on how much you are pasting at a time. Years ago, in the classic "Hacker's Guide to Word for Windows", Woody Leonhard revealed that there is a threshold above which Word copies the entire stylesheet from the source (copied from) document into the target (pasted into) document. Back in those days, the threshold was 24 paragraphs. Up to that number of paragraphs, all you pasted were the locally formatted paragraphs; above that number, you got the stylesheet along with the paragraphs. The nasty gotcha is that each cell of a table counted toward this threshold, so pasting even a small table table cold get you into stylesheet trouble. I have no idea whether the number associated with this threshold has changed, but I'd be amazed if the underlying logic has gone away.
