Git the news here! Code quality doesn't count for much when it comes to pull requests

"other factors such as the reputation of the maintainer and the importance of the feature delivered might be more important than code quality in terms of pull request acceptance"

I didn't see anything which suggested that any of the code being accepted was actually bad. In that case then yes, I would expect that an important feature that users were waiting for would get priority over an unimportant change.

And I would also expect that a change that didn't much value would get rejected, regardless of how well formatted and styled it was.
