The above documentation states:

beamed-lengths (list):
'(3.5 3.5 3.5 4.5 5.0)

list of stem lengths given beam multiplicity .

As stated in my previous response, the values of (list) are the source of my confusion. I haven't found a clear explanation of how values of (list) are applied. The example (which, I assume, has default values) shows a list of five numbers. The example which I followed had a list of 3 values. Unfortunately, I can't recall whether it came from the manual or the archives.

The first value is the stem length of 8th notes, the second is that of
16th notes and so on. If you have a shorter note than is specified
by the list, the value at the end of the list is used.

I was surprised that an adjustment was required in the piece I was  coding-

\acciaccatura { af,16[ af'] } <af c gf'>8\arpeggio buried the af' in the bar. I'm assuming it had something to do with the chord which followed. It is certainly an advantage that Lilypond allows adjustments!

Yes, but in this case it's rather a bug that LilyPond doesn't do the
right thing directly.
