Ah yes, forgot to mention that- seeing it both ways.

Yeah the MacBook is retina and the external display is 4k.

After seeing the new xwidgets patches that went in today I recompiled
the master branch to experiment a bit, but I first hit this issue a
couple of months ago when I first experimented with Emacs 28- I should
have reported the bug earlier, sorry about that (xwidgets actually
brought me back to playing with 28 after staying with 27 recently).
