Space management around tables is the responsibility of each macro
package.  The job of tbl(1) itself is to render the table.  There was a
bug in the past several versions of groff in this area, but it involved
man(7) documents, not mom(7), and the issue was too little space _after_
a table, not too much _before_ it (also: in nroff mode only).
