My understanding is that the position is correct it's just that the link follows relative to the Part container
I just check to confirm that it is placement relative to the Part container and not only it's offset from attachment.
This file is a modified version of yours, I put your link sphere in another Part, adjusted the second Part z to the same -4mm and the spheres were overlapping perfectly as expected.
Then I added the cube, and changed your original sphere's attachment to a vertex of that cube which moved it 10mm back, the link sphere in the second Part container (Part001) also moved the 10mm so that it still perfectly overlaps. This demonstrates that Link is following placement of the original object relative to the original objects Part container , and if the link output object is not in a Part container then its placement is relative to the Global axis system. When the link object is moved into a new Part container it automatically applies it's placement relative to that new Part container.
No doubt realthunder will advise if I have miss understood something.
But If my understanding is correct then this is intended behaviour.
