Ah, stupid me.
I confused indentation guides with 'show whitespace'.

Now, I looked a bit deeper into it and the behaviour is correct for the
mode SC_IV_LOOKBOTH which we use for most filetypes (including C),
according to the Scintilla documentation:

"Indentation guides are shown beyond the actual indentation up to the
level of the next non-empty line or previous non-empty line whichever is
the greater."

And now, I also understand my comment on the bug report again :). Though
I could have said this in more detail.
Now done and closed.

If anyone disagrees, just re-open it and put some more info in. If it's
a real issue still, one could make the used indentation guide
configurable per language. Since I don't use, I don't feel like doing it
is necessary but that's just me.
