No Polish speaker would say "jego" in this sentence. It should either be "On został wychowany przez swoją babcię" or "On został wychowany przez babcię". The original version sounds really strange.

It's not true. English is often very limited language.

He was raised by his grandma. = He was raised by HIS OWN grandma. "Został wychowany przez SWOJĄ babcię."

He was raised by his grandma. = He was raised by NOT HIS OWN BUT OTHER MAN grandma. "Został wychowany przez JEGO babcię"

That it's a proper way to say about matters regarding the other person - when two men are interacting with each other.
