This is a side-effect of freetype autohinting.  See the details at:
ftgrid is in freetype2-demos, if you want to try the experiment there.

Upstream E devs do not consider it a bug.  The first hit on enlightenment-users

Best solution is to use a different font.  Inconsolata from fonts-inconsolata
and IBM Plex Mono from fonts-ibm-plex have both been better for me.  Fixes
fonts like terminus should also help.

Sorry I don't have a better solution,
