2 things. It’s either a paragraph and thus you only need your cursor to be
anywhere on the paragraph. Or it’s a selection and you can either apply a
character style or a paragraph style (the paragraph style will of course
apply to the whole paragraph, that is, between the 2 returns). When you
right-click, you are in one of those situations.

The paragraph style will have no effect on the character style. The
paragraph style will be marked with a plus sign showing that there is local
settings there but if it is defined as a char style this style will remain
as it is.
