Lemma 17.27.6. Let $f : Y \to X$ be a continuous map of topological spaces. Let $\varphi : \mathcal{O}_1 \to \mathcal{O}_2$ be a homomorphism of sheaves of rings on $X$. Then there is a canonical identification $f^{-1}\Omega _{\mathcal{O}_2/\mathcal{O}_1} = \Omega _{f^{-1}\mathcal{O}_2/f^{-1}\mathcal{O}_1}$ compatible with universal derivations.

Proof. This holds because the sheaf $\Omega _{\mathcal{O}_2/\mathcal{O}_1}$ is the cokernel of the map (17.27.2.1) and a similar statement holds for $\Omega _{f^{-1}\mathcal{O}_2/f^{-1}\mathcal{O}_1}$, because the functor $f^{-1}$ is exact, and because $f^{-1}(\mathcal{O}_2[\mathcal{O}_2]) = f^{-1}\mathcal{O}_2[f^{-1}\mathcal{O}_2]$, $f^{-1}(\mathcal{O}_2[\mathcal{O}_2 \times \mathcal{O}_2]) = f^{-1}\mathcal{O}_2[f^{-1}\mathcal{O}_2 \times f^{-1}\mathcal{O}_2]$, and $f^{-1}(\mathcal{O}_2[\mathcal{O}_1]) = f^{-1}\mathcal{O}_2[f^{-1}\mathcal{O}_1]$. $\square$

Is the functor on sheaves of rings truly exact, or simply right-exact (as is the case for abelian sheaves)? This doesn't change the content of the proof, however.

What was meant was that is an exact functor on the category of sheaves. But I also do not understand your comment as is an exact functor on the category of abelian sheaves.
