The \newSpacingSection command only ensures that there are two separate
sections which can have their own spacing. If you want, you can
independently tweak them with overrides.

The second section from the example mainly consists of 16th notes and
therefore has a wider spacing.
In the first section, the amount of 16th notes in the whole section is very
small, so spacing is narrower because there are mainly 8th notes.

So the overall effect is that \newSpacingSection prevents the first section
being widened because of the 16ths in the last bar.

Cheers,
Klaus
