Lemma 6.26.4. Let $(f, f^\sharp) : (X, \mathcal{O}_X) \to (Y, \mathcal{O}_Y)$ be a morphism of ringed spaces. Let $\mathcal{G}$ be a sheaf of $\mathcal{O}_Y$-modules. Let $x \in X$. Then $$(f^*\mathcal{G})_x = \mathcal{G}_{f(x)} \otimes_{\mathcal{O}_{Y, f(x)}} \mathcal{O}_{X, x}$$ as $\mathcal{O}_{X, x}$-modules where the tensor product on the right uses $f^\sharp_x : \mathcal{O}_{Y, f(x)} \to \mathcal{O}_{X, x}$.

Proof. This follows from Lemma 6.20.3 and the identification of the stalks of pullback sheaves at $x$ with the corresponding stalks at $f(x)$. See the formulae in Section 6.23 for example. $\square$

\begin{lemma}
\label{lemma-stalk-pullback-modules}
Let $(f, f^\sharp) : (X, \mathcal{O}_X) \to (Y, \mathcal{O}_Y)$
be a morphism of ringed spaces.
Let $\mathcal{G}$ be a sheaf of $\mathcal{O}_Y$-modules.
Let $x \in X$. Then
$$(f^*\mathcal{G})_x = \mathcal{G}_{f(x)} \otimes_{\mathcal{O}_{Y, f(x)}} \mathcal{O}_{X, x}$$
as $\mathcal{O}_{X, x}$-modules where the tensor product on the right
uses $f^\sharp_x : \mathcal{O}_{Y, f(x)} \to \mathcal{O}_{X, x}$.
\end{lemma}

\begin{proof}
This follows from Lemma \ref{lemma-stalk-tensor-sheaf-modules}
and the identification of the stalks of pullback sheaves
at $x$ with the corresponding stalks at $f(x)$. See the
formulae in Section \ref{section-presheaves-structures-functorial}
for example.
\end{proof}

Typo. It should be $\mathcal{F}_{f(x)} \otimes_{\mathcal{O}_{Y, f(x)}} \mathcal{O}_{X, x}$

Thanks for the comment. I have fixed this as well as the other typo you pointed out. See this commit.
