I see this font problem on macOS, too. In particular, I noticed that the "Content process limit" setting's value "4 (default)" is truncated to "4 (defa...".

Also, the "Content process limit" setting's drop down menu uses a smaller font (which can show the full "4 (default)" string) than the value after it has been selected. I don't know if that is a bug or not.
