That doesn't increase the _spacing_ but the padding.

It doesn't change the baseline at all.  The additional padding may make
it necessary to shift the baseline in order to avoid collisions with
other scripts or objects.  You likely want to change staff-padding
instead which is supposed to make room for the reference points rather
than the outlines.
