I do not set anything in the default-frame-alist except for the font.
The alist is initialized the way it is because of other functions I

The latter sounds very reasonable: why use some special code to give GNU Emacs the desired frame size and position when there are the *- frame-alists?

I checked the NEWS file after I found this, but it seems to say that
the position values are used for the initial frame.

If there are *no* particular initial-frame-alist settings, then the default-frame-alist settings (also) apply for the first or initial frame.

At first I thought it was a bug, but since it works from shell, there
is something else at play.

Launching GNU Emacs with -Q (i.e. not loading system and user init files) allows you to examine the problem – and find and describe a possible bug. But beware: in windowing systems' environments there can be settings in (X11) resource or (MS) registry files that impose on their clients some behaviour (position, size) when nothing else is given ...
