Follow-up Comment #2, bug #59154 (project make):

This is done on purpose.  Newlines in variable expansions are treated as real
newlines in the rule.  If they weren't, then multiline definitions would not
work at all:

define MYRULE
echo hello
echo world

all: ; $(MYRULE)

I suppose there may be some way to special-case things, I'm not sure.
