That depends on what font you have installed that's used to display
those characters.  It is best to have fonts of approximately the same

There's no need to get rid of margins, as I think the problem you
describe is purely aesthetic, and quite expected when you have lines
of different height.  Why does it bother you so much?

Because the window layout begins at the first screen line, and the
y-coordinate of a screen line is its top edge.  So the display engine
can always position the first screen line exactly, whereas where the
last screen line ends depends on what is in-between, and the scroll
margin at the end of the window forces the last pixel of the point's
line to be above the margin.

I also think that if you produce text where lines have more than just
2 different heights, you will see a similar problem while scrolling
up as well.

That's not a bug: the button-face line is slightly longer than the
lines in the default face, and scrolling attempts to preserve the
x-coordinate of point, not the column (because the same column could
be at very different x-coordinate due to fonts, faces, inline images,
etc.).  You can see what's going on if you put the cursor on a
boxed-text line, then scroll: you will see a small jitter of the
cursor in the horizontal direction.
