This is gtk thing, not much to do with xfce, but since I just happened
to run into it:  :

The tooltip's window is named "gtk-tooltips", GtkTooltips in itself is 
not a GtkWidget (though a GtkObject) and as such is not attempted to 
match any widget styles.

So, you resource file should look something like:

style "postie"
      bg[NORMAL] = {1.0, 1.0, 0.0}
widget "gtk-tooltips*" style "postie"

resource file = ~/gtkrc-2.0
