Thank you Carl.

I further cut down the snippet size to 82 lines as suggestion from Carl.

Definitely it is because \EzNum.  This Eznum is to help display note number inside the notehead.  The larger staff is to accommodate it.   How can I modify the \EzNum in order the stem length not to be affected by the larger staff lines/spaces?   Appreciate the help.
Blessing in+,

Could you substitute a pair of eighth notes and demonstrate the problem?
Do you need to have a GrandStaff, or could you observe the same problem on

doesn't do this.

No.  \EzNum was something that you were given to help you solve a problem
you were having.  It's not part of the release and not supported by
