You're only using rests shorter than 10 bars; they're expanded to
church style rests; by convention.


    \clef violin
    \key bes \major
     \time 4/4

     % don't expand short rests
     \property Score.MultiMeasureRest \override #'expand-limit = #2

    \property Score.skipBars = ##t R1*8 R1*2
    \relative c'' {
     [d8-- d->] r4 d4-^ r des4.-- c8-> r2
  % etc...
   \paper { }

If you look in the automatically generated documentation under multi
measure rest, there's a hint about this:
