I'm not really sure that I understand what you are trying to say,
but it looks like there is some misunderstanding how 'if' directive

Unless used with rewrite module directives (e.g. set) 'if'
directive will create "hidden" location that will work as normal
one if rewrite module processing stops in it (i.e. break directive
used). It doesn't really influence request processing if rewrite
module processing doesn't stop there.

Since you have no 'break' in your "if ($request_uri ...)" -
add_header and expires directives there doesn't matter.

It's somewhat ugly and one of the reasons why usage of 'if' is
generally discouraged.

Instead, you should rewrite your configuration to something like

location / {
try_files $uri @proxy;

location @proxy {

location /resources/ {
try_files $uri @proxy_resources;
add_header X-Foo 'bar';
expires 30d;

location @proxy_resources {
add_header X-Foo 'bar';
expires 30d;
