Thank you for another good question Ron!

NULL value will also be returned in the below two conditions:

-- When starting position is negative
SELECT STUFF(@str, -1,5,@stx)
-- When starting position is greater than the expression length => LEN(@str)
SELECT STUFF(@str, 7,5,@stx)

The explanation is fine for the second example.
But there's no mention of why a NULL value for 'replace with' returns a non-null result.
This confused me when I first came across it, and confuses me still!
