For optimisation purposes, compositing window managers may like to not draw obscured regions of windows, or turn off blending during for these regions. With RGB windows with no transparency, this is just the shape of the window, but with ARGB32 windows, the compositor does not know what regions of the window are transparent or not.
This function only works for toplevel windows.
GTK+ will update this property automatically if the window background is opaque, as we know where the opaque regions are. If your window background is not opaque, please update this property in your style-updated handler.
