Note: The font is Emmentaler.

The clef itself seems to have less space to the right in Emmentaler than others clefs do, or than the same clef does in Bravura. No opinion on whether this is good bad or indifferent.

It might not be the glyph itself, though. Might be the bbox() calculation within MuseScore, perhaps being thrown off by bad metrics or bad values returned by Qt. Run mscore -d and check the red & green boxes around the percussion clef. You'll see the the clef is shifted to the right if using Emmentaler.
