Sure, try this:

upper = \relative c'' {
  \clef treble
  a4 b c d
lower = \relative c {
  \clef bass
  a2 c
dynamics = {
  s2\fff\> s4 s\!\pp
\score {
  \new PianoStaff = "PianoStaff_pf" <<
    \new Staff = "Staff_pfUpper" \upper
    \new Dynamics = "Dynamics_pf" \dynamics
    \new Staff = "Staff_pfLower" \lower
  \layout {
    \context {
      \override NonMusicalPaperColumn #'line-break-system-details =
        #'((alignment-distances . (20)))

Yes, since I thought setting padding would add the same amount of
space above and below the dynamics line.

No, you're right; having tested it on real music (rather than just the
template, where it works for any size of #'non-affinity-spacing
#'padding), it's no good. :)
