Usually we mount them on a backing of some sort, but you could use a latex thinset, and tape them until dry, or Vulkem, or even waterproof liquid nails,using the red stucco tape to hold them in place.Scratch the stuco a little to flatten it.

I installed several carved stone "signs" on stucco homes, and for the rougher textures traced the sign out, cut the line 1/4" deep with a hand grinder and hand chiseled out the stucco first. this way the sign sets in the texture (although not flush) and looks very "finished". BTW we set them in 10 minute epoxy, just so we know it's stuck before we leave.
