  say how to get "newline" working
It looks like the CLP of DB2 gives you the behaviour you are asking for


But as mentioned before this is outside XQuery itself it's the environment , API , or processor that adds this bit

I personally feel it would have been a better choice to have used new lines ( whatever they are ) instead of spaces as the default XDM serialization separator for sequences but that's really a tiny thing in the grand scheme of things.
Xmlsh does this but it's vastly more useful to NOT serialize sequences but rather keep them in internal form so You can pick them apart Before handing them off to a non XDM aware process.
Hence the suggestion of using an API that can get at the results of XQuery aka XDM before serialization.   Xmlsh also supports this .. Getting the results of any XDM process in an internal form without serialization.   But  that's again the province of the processor and/or API.  Not XQuery itself.

Again back to the unanswered questions
What processor are you using
What results do you expect and why
What is your end goal
Maybe there is a better way to accomplish your end goals then text serialization tweaks to XDM
