How could that be true for "rdf:About"?

It doesn't matter how you segment it.

You haven't answered my question. Some piece of software stumbles upon
"eg:Document". It doesn't know about eg:Document yet. It knows a bunch
about eg:Work. eg:Document is a subclass of eg:Work, so everything it
knows about eg:Work should apply to eg:Document. How does it discover
the subclass relationship? I don't care how you segment it into rdf
processor and application.
