Maybe you should try making your bug reports not riddles.  The main
visible difference is that DrumStaff has a drum clef, so "Shouldn't
these two yield identical results?" is very likely _not_ to focus the
attention on where you want it.

For RhythmicStaff, the bar lines are explicitly designed to match those
of a five-line staff.  Take a look at

\new RhythmicStaff \with { \override StaffSymbol #'line-count = 3 } { c'1 c'1 }

In contrast, DrumStaff has normal bar lines matching the system, and
linecounts of 1 and smaller lead to the fallback of 3-line system

Personally, I find the RhythmicStaff bar lines a bit excessive.  But
changing them would be _quite_ an incompatible change.
