This behavior was discovered first on 1.18.0 (Ubuntu 20.04) but can be reproduced with the latest docker container.

events {
    worker_connections  1024;
http {
    server {
        listen 80;
        proxy_http_version 1.1;
        proxy_ssl_server_name on;

        #doesn't work unless `proxy_hide_header` in location / is removed
        proxy_hide_header Link;

        location / {

            #works, but `proxy_hide_header` in `server` context stops working
            proxy_hide_header X-Pingback;
sudo docker run -p 3000:80 -it -v /home/dmitry/nginx.conf:/etc/nginx/nginx.conf:ro nginx
curl localhost:3000/ -I

You'll see that Link header is passed to curl (even though proxy_hide_header Link; is there). Try to remove proxy_hide_header X-Pingback; from location, restart nginx and curl again. Link header will be hidden as it should.

Much like any directives in nginx configuration, proxy_hide_header directives are inherited from the previous configuration level only if there are no proxy_hide_header directives defined on the current level. That is, the behaviour you observe is exactly as it should be: when you redefine headers to hide at the location level, the list of headers to hide is redefined, not extended.
