Precisely what I expected and why I asked you to conduct this
experiment.  Some window managers do that when mapping a window.

To continue the experiment: I suppose that once your frame has become
visible, you can make it 800x700 characters large.  What happens when
you iconify that frame and make it visible again?

Who knows?  Uusually, I say here that one of Emacs' original sins is to
request a frame size based on that frame's default character size.
