Years ago I made a 4800dpi film in a printshop. It was surprisingly different than a 600dpi laser-print.
So to make a fair comparison one should print pages with the same professional technology and see.

In both the HTML and PDF versions, LilyPond's staff lines are
in fact the thinnest when compared. I've included a png to
make this easier to see. In the HTML version, the distance
from top to bottom staff line of the LP example was smaller
than the other 2, but even when scaling the LP example to
match the other 2 (as I've done here) the LP lines are still
the thinnest. The PDF example is magnified about 300 times.

Can someone explain this?

The staff lines on your other examples have been broadened by anti-aliasing.
The staff line on the LilyPond example have not been, because it's a vector
drawing.  So your comparision is not apt.

I have not viewed the originals to make any judgement of them.
