The xfce4-session splash screen uses the default xrdb settings, not the ones
in ~/.config/xfce4/Xft.xrdb or even /etc/xdg/xfce4/Xft.xrdb. It looks like
they're not getting loaded into the X server on startup.

Suggestion: clear your ~/.Xresources file (eg. rename it). Log in and check
the output of "xrdb -q".
