Same here, tried on Scribus 1.5.4 with our normal LTR set-up and our
"default" font Charis SIL:

All tabs set via Style Manager for "Default Paragraph Style":

text is 180 mm wide, font-size 16 pt, three tabs at 60, 120 and 180 mm,
all of them right tabs:

right tab at 180 mm fail (jumps to next line, unexpected)

right tab at 179.999 mm fail (so not a work-around)

right tab at 179 mm works as expected

No time for more tests today. I will watch this space as the solution
will be interesting for us too.
