They are not conventions, they are documented behavior: just pay
attention to the signal documentation. In your specific case you
probably connected a callback to the "button-press-event" signal.
Citing the relevant documentation [1]:

    Returns: TRUE to stop other handlers from being invoked for
    the event. FALSE to propagate the event further.

I think this is respected for all "*-event" signals.
