Yes. Your cue is placed around a quarter-note and a dotted-eighth note
rest, but the cued music has four eighth notes, so doesn't end at the
end of the cued duration. It would seem that LilyPond has only picked up
the three eighth notes that do fit inside the cued duration, and then it
has to beam those, which it decides should be un-beamed. So, it looks
like the cued music needs to be complete enough to have the beaming
rules apply to it.

You can adjust their positions using Notes/Rests->Rest
Insertion->Displace Rest Vertically. This moves the rest to the line
where the cursor is, though LilyPond may move it further if it thinks
more space is needed.

Thanks for exploring this.
