Do stat mods affect growth rates or just the maximum stats?

When people say Lissa passes down her -2 Str mod to Owain, does that mean his max str is -2 lower? Does it subtract from the percentage chance that he gains a point in str in level ups as well? If so, what's the percentage?

Thanks

Yes, although child characters get +1 to all stats just because.

Not directly, but the growth rate bonuses and penalties for characters (Lissa) tend to generally mirror their cap modifiers.

Children inherit 1/3rd of their mother's growth rate for a stat (children have their own personal 1/3rd, and then they also inherit 1/3rd from the father).
