Thanks Wolfgang,

so to make style=... also work on the header the trick was to change
  \bTH Header \eTH
  \bTD Header \eTD.

What is the purpose of \bTH \eTH then? BTW the Wiki says: "Please take account of the fact, that the head cells are enclosed by \bTH and \eTH (and not \[be]TC)."

\bTH seems to only override style=... since "\bTD Header \eTD" is repeated correctly with \bTABLE[split=repeat,setups=table:style].
