*why* does that work? That is, why is the superscripted text moved down more than the non-superscripted?

I want to include the r-square value in a graph inside the plot area:

When I specify the option:

text(25  12 "r{superscript:2} =  0`r2'"

I get the desired result except that the superscript is too far above the “r”. How do I get the superscript to be closer to the “r”

Here is an example using the auto data.

sysuse auto, clear
regress mpg price
local r2= round(e(r2),.0001)
graph twoway  (scatter mpg price) (lfit mpg price) , legend(off) text(35  13000 "r{superscript:2} =  0`r2'")
