I suspect somewhere in the process the page size is set to Letter instead of A4.
Please try the following:
–	stop the printer
–	do a test print from Windows which uses to exhibit the issue
–	save the input file (/var/spool/cups/d0xxxx-001, where xxxx is the job ID)
	(as a super user, of cause)
–	release the printer and verify that the issue has been occurred
Post the saved file and the PPD used by CUPS (/etc/cups/ppd/Brother-MFC-7860DW.ppd).
