something to be centered when it's not actually centered, for example, in
typography, letters like "O" or "S" are often put below a baseline. So, maybe,
checkboxes should be even a little bit closer to icons/text.

Yes. That's what needs fixing. I know there are subtleties with rect.left +
rect.width() vs rect.right(). You can easily loose or gain a +1 there.
Also, fonts might not start exactly at the rect depending on hinting, which
letter is drawn etc.
But anyway. This can be investigated, if only by actually drawing the
relevant rect and see where space is lost, misaligned, etc.
