Why does this code look different when used in a "real" score?

Trying to troubleshoot engraving issues. Here is the code that works:

\version "2.19.82"
\language "english"

\score {
    \new Staff { a''8 \once\override NoteColumn.X-offset = #-5 r a'4 a' a' }
    \new Staff { \clef alto  <c' a f>8 \once\override NoteColumn.X-offset = #-5 r << { a4. bf8 c'4 } \\ { f2 a4 } >> }
    \new Staff { \clef bass  f8 \once\override NoteColumn.X-offset = #-5 r df2 c4 }

Looks exactly like one thinks it should:


The NoteColumn overrides are to fix issues with 8th rest in the organ part of the "real" score (with the override):

The NoteColumn override does shift the notes on beat 2 as expected. But the positioning of the three 8th rests in all of the organ parts is different:


The code at the beginning of this email results in the three 8th rests vertically aligned as expected. But in the "real" score, they are not. Only difference is that there are multiple parts (flute, string quartet, SATB choir) as this same point. Flute is tacet, strings all play a half note, choir has a quarter rest then begins on beat 2. The organ left hand has a polyphonic context.
