Bot adds space before closing brackets in citation template, but not consistently [enwiki]
Open, Needs TriagePublic

Description

I noticed that when this bot adds parameters to a citation template, it adds a space before the closing brackets "}}". I noticed this here. Strangely, it doesn't happen always, and it is not clear to me if there is a rule to it. In any case. I would strongly like to ask that the bot stop doing this. It is not customary to have a space after the opening brackets "{{" or before the closing brackets, and it is a well-established rule that bots should not introduce style changes. If anything, the bot should be removing such spaces, especially where they were introduced by it.
