Well, it's definitely a workaround, but keep in mind that a
RehearsalMark grob is optimized for displaying "rehearsal marks"; the
default value (end-of-line-invisible) is the best option for this

Since you are using the Coda symbol for the RehearsalMark text, it
makes sense that some workarounds to achieve optimal layout might be

If there was built-in support for typesetting Coda symbols, the
default settings would be different, but this support does not exist
right now.
