That syntax is bogus.  You do one of:
There is no case where you append "STACK" to a LINE or AREA.

The rrdgraph man page says:
     Does the same as LINE?, but the graph gets stacked on top of the
     previous LINE?, AREA or STACK graph. Depending on the type of the
     previous graph, the STACK will be either a LINE? or an AREA.  This
     obviously implies that the first STACK must be preceded by an AREA or
     LINE? -- you need something to stack some­ thing onto in the first place
So, you do need something before the first STACK.
