I've looked more closely at this phenomenon by trying a wide range of
font sizes and now conclude that the perceived problem arises because
the centring is calculated (sensibly) from the capital letters. The
centre line of lower case letters will appear to be below the centre
line that applies to the text as a whole.
In other words, there's nothing wrong with how it works.
