Not knowing the structure of your calorimeter, my guess would be that the protons, in addition to creating a lot of scintillation light in the first few layers, will interact hadronically, producing other hadrons like neutrons and pions which will make it to the deeper layers and cause more scintillation there.

The pi0 will convert quickly to gammas and, like electrons, produce an EM shower with relatively few particles penetrating to the deeper layers.

In short, perhaps what you are seeing is reasonable.
