Mouse-face isn't supposed to cover newlines, I think.  Why do you need
that?

The "one character shorter" variant does what it's expected to do,
because mouse-face is not extended to EOL as with other faces.
Mouse-face is for showing the parts of text that are mouse-sensitive,
so it makes no sense to highlight portions of display that have no
text.

It's in the display code, and is quite complicated due to
bidirectional text use case.  See mouse_face_from_buffer_pos and its
subroutine rows_from_pos_range.
