'Lower notes' is the wrong term.  AFAICS, it's rather that it should
applied to the voice where the stem ends.

Okay, that good information.  How about we put that into the example at least?  (What's posted below might be made "prettier".)

\version "2.24.1"

\layout {
  \context {
    \consists "Span_stem_engraver"

  \new PianoStaff <<
    \new Staff {
      <b d'>4 r d'16\> e'8. g8 r\!
      e'8 f' g'4
      % Down to lower staff
      \crossStaff { e'8 e'8 } e'4
    \new Staff {
      \clef bass
      % Up to upper staff
      \crossStaff { <e g>4 e, g16 a8. c8 } d
      g8 f g4 \voiceTwo g8 g g4
