If you plot...

p1 = Show[Graphics[{Circle[{0, 0}, 1]}]];

and then use

AbsoluteOptions[p1, PlotRange]
{PlotRange -> {{-1.05, 1.05}, {-1.05, 1.05}}}

you see that the PlotRange is not just the extent of the graphic primitives.
Mathematica has its internal algorithm to determine PlotRange unless you
specify it explicitly. It generally uses a slightly wider extent, and it
there are many items in the plot with 'outliers' then it often picks 'the
most interesting part'.

So if the selected PlotRange is not what you want, then specify it

Well, this happens with any graphics. The dotted line around the selected
image (with resize blocks around it), as in the attached
image, is not flush with the image extents, but has space around the plotted
points/lines. This code produces the attached image:

Show[Graphics[{Circle[{0, 0}, 1];

I want to make the selection line flush with the plotrange extents.
