Just cannot resist but this is again about flex units (%% or just *) :)

Here is an example of how I am doing that dots:

<li>text text text<span class="dots" /><span class="n">n<span/></li>
where span.dots defined as :

   display: inline-block;
   border-bottom:1px dotted black;
   width: 1*;     /* see 'relative units' in HTML 4.01 */

Such span.dots behave as a spring shifting span.n
to the right.

This is the right way of how to do them.
last-line will not help you here as it in typography
it historically renders as real dot filler:

1. text text text.........................................12
