Pages two and three of the PDF do not show this problem. Comparing pages one and three of the .sla I see that the right-hand text frames have the same width and the same x pos, so I don't know why only page one shows this problem.

After more testing I was able to fix the problem even more cleanly. Since the problem was only on page one, I deleted the page one frames, copied working frames from page three, fixed up the frame chain, and everything was good. All punctuation renders completely, optical margins are on for all frames, and all frames have exactly the same width.
So, I don't know what was wrong with those original page one frames, but there's apparently no Scribus bug involved here.
Thanks for everyone's help.
