Yes, because the block's line height is based on the font size *of the
block* not of the characters in the block. In XSL-FO characters sit on the
lines generated by the block, characters don't generate lines by
themselves. If you want all of the lines of a block to be a particular
size, set that size as a property of the block and *then* sit your
characters on those lines.
This is a common question in my XSL-FO classes ... it comes up in
discussion when you want two leaders to be positioned close to each other:
one sizes the lines of the blocks to be very short and *then* you place the
leader on the lines and they will be closer together.
I hope this helps.
