And that happens on auto-started gettys too.

Commenting this from /lib/systemd/system/getty@.service:


does fix the issue: the tty size is preserved from the setupcon call.
So what happens is that since systemd disallocates the console, the tty
size is lost, and when recreated, it defaults to the VT driver default
size, instead of what setupcon wanted to configure. fbcon systematically
recomputes the VT size according to the fontsize.

Should udev or systemd perhaps provide some hook to configure a
just-created VT?
