AffectsMeasure

When you place a ContentPresenter in the ControlTemplate of a ContentControl, it automatically displays the Content of the templated control. This means that if you set the TargetType of your ControlTemplate to be Button, the Content property of the ContentPresenter is implicitly bound to the Content of the Button that is using that ControlTemplate.

To set up bindings for the ContentPresenter properties, you may want to consider using the ContentSource property. The ContentSource property points to a property on the templated parent as well as aliases the associated template and template selector properties automatically.
