I could be wrong, but I don't think you can stop that behavior, since it's part of the meter.
The meter is being stretched, so all parts of the meter will be stretched.

take a look at the files for the meter.
make a note of which ones are using pink and/or yellow lines.
The area at the top is for the clipping, so look at that meter file first.

I haven't find the good file or I haven't do the good manipulation. The secret is maybe inside the rtconfig.txt ?

I had a chance to look at it and it's just an illusion, it does stretch.
You can see it if you make the volume clip.
The file involved should be the first one listed below.

meter_clip_v.png
also look at:
meter_strip_v.png

The dark section in those files is for when the meter is not active.
That section has the same color as the main background for the middle of the layout.
You will need to do the same if possible in your file(s) to create the illusion when the meter is not active.

examples of stretching in the default:
