Given this document (note value of "precedence=" attribute on

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<fo:root xmlns:fo="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Format"
     <fo:simple-page-master master-name="mypage"
   <fo:page-sequence master-reference="mypage">
     <fo:flow flow-name="xsl-region-body"
>Precedence on region-before is 'true'</fo:inline

XEP correctly makes the before region before the full page width. If you
switch precedence to "false" (the default), the before region is
correctly limited to the space allowed by the extents of the start and
end regions *but* the start and end regions are not then extended to
page's before edge as required. That is, when you format the document
with precedence set to false, you get a white square in each corner
where the start and end regions should be.
