is it expected that \right)² is not recognized as \right)^2?

Yes it is, to enable this feature you need the “mathcrap” module.

Thank you for the quick answer, but ² is still not put at the correct
height when used like `\right)²`.

Looking at the mathcrap module (nice name :p), it seems the ² (and other
superscript characters) is defined as {\normalsuperscript{2}} and the
extra grouping makes the superscript to be applied to an empty base not
the brace. Not sure if removing that extra group is safe or not
(\normalsuperscript{2} on its own seems to be safe).

not grouping gives an error on $a₀₁₂₃₄₅₆₇₈₉₋₌₊$ (maybe we could have {}\normal... but on the other hand, this module is not really needed as mkiv already recognizes these funny chars anyway
