Iʼm not sure I understand here: this is a non-default face, and itʼs
not being extended to the window edge. Based on what you say here
thatʼs normal, but X11 and Windows *donʼt* do it?

Yes: on macOS, if I turn on hl-line-mode, then the highlighting is
only extended to the edge if point is not in the last line of the
buffer. That may well be a symptom of the same issue (and itʼs kind of
disconcerting now that Iʼve noticed it :-) )
