I think this behaviour is correct – the idea is to have staves with
different sizes aligned vertically.

If you can provide a small MWE I suggest you file a documentation bug

Indeed, thanks.  There is still one thing that surprises me: The
distances between accidentals and noteheads increase for smaller
sizes.  Comparing, say, `feta13' with `feta26', you can see that the
whitespace before accidentals increases at smaller sizes also.  I'm
not sure that I really like this for all circumstances.

Pro: It improves appearance if you combine larger and smaller staves.

Con: Pocket scores would have more horizontal whitespace available for
     formatting if accidentals have less whitespace at the left and
     right side.  I will have a look in some manually engraved pocket
     scores to check this.
