First of all, \addlyrics is only intended to be used for the most simple 
cases, you have more control over it with \lyricsto.

Now, I believe what you have found is a bug. Here is a smaller example:
\version "2.4.2"
<< \context Staff {c d e f} \new Staff {c2 d} \addlyrics { hej hopp } >>
Intuitively, the hopp should be below the d2, but it isn't.

This is either a bug in lilypond (lyrics should be aligned to the prev. staff, 
not the uppermost), or in documentation (it should be mentioned that the 
behaviour might be unintuitive with multiple staves)
