It may be dependent on the font, or possibly other factors. Can you give us a sample file to play with?

Non-rectangular text frames often appear not to respect the wanted position but rather stick to the object dimension and theoretical lengths of lines, which vary in particular within curved shapes.

For non-rectangular text frames you can achieve more detailed results if you adjust manually, using baseline shift (character panel) + inset (text frame panel) , e.g.:
[ Note an oddity (or bug?) here: If you set the paragraph to center align then a Bottom inset would move the text horizontally, not vertically as expected. ]

Its down to the tracking and kerning built into the font. You can always use text with no background and then add the background manually then you have a little more arbitrary control over the layout. Just personal preference really.
