this kind of thing is perfectly normal for a lot of games, since the operator would be expected to stretch it off-screen the developers rarely cared.
50/50 chance of it being an actual bug or intentional behaviour I'd say.

namcona1.cpp: Added dynamic screen visible area change effect, used mostly by Numan Athletics on transitions [Angelo Salese]
This dynamic screen visible area change looks ugly and could certainly be programmed without stripes!

|It is not only the lines, it is also the transition screens, they are in dark red color instead of black.|

it's pen 0, so gets displayed where nothing else is.
maybe there's a bg pen register to specify a different pen, if it were just the bars I'd say not a bug, but yeah, the fullscreen transitions look rather wrong.

Should be black. What's annoying is that X-Day 2 uses the background color for the flame effects, pretty likely there must be an unemulated behaviour there.
The stripes dimension is correct anyway, it's really intended to cut off one line at top/bottom as proven by the video.
(Also all of this is noted in source anyway)
