I just tried a little experiment. I typed a sentence, with a period at the end. I then started typing the next sentence with a lower case n. I then placed the cursor directly over the first vertical line in the n. After I finished the word, the n changed to upper case ...

(That's just LibreOffice's AutoCorrect in action, of course.)

... and the first vertical line moved to the right, so it was no longer under the cursor and resulting space was wider. I tried again with an i as the first letter and the same thing happened, but the shift was not as great.

Any change you see would surely just be due to different amounts of white space included around different characters in the font? And don't forget that positioning on a display is limited by the resolution of the screen - much coarser than potentially available on the eventual printed copy.
