Agree.

Plus inserting a bar line where the measure does *not* end is not usual
music practice.  Except for double bar line ( \bar "||" ) that are
allowed even if the measure does not end at this place, because they
means the end of one "part" of the music.
Have you considered using a  \breathe  instead?

If you really want to force a *normal* bar line there, use

\bar "|"

Cheers,
Xavier
