XSL-FO 1.0 section 5.3.2 clearly indicates
start-indent= has precedence in this case (even
if inherited from ancestors). In order to get
padding= to have precedence over start-indent=,
one would have to specify margin= and
margin="0pt" is sufficient to engage padding in this fashion.

I hope this helps.
