I fixed the default of overflow in my implementation and I now see 2.5
lines. I looked at why this was the case:

The default value of line-height is normal is defined as a "reasonable"
value based on the value of the font-size, which is recommended to be
something between 1.0 and 1.2 (in order words, 1em to 1.2em). The height
of 3em also refers to the size of the font-size. So, if you want to
guarantee that the third line is completely visible, you should also set
a value for line-height in the test and take it into account for the
height of the region.
