To reproduce:

 Set up your text terminal for some encoding that doesn't support
 curved quotes.  In my case, this was cp862.  Then:

 emacs -Q
 C-h f electric-quote-mode RET
 C-x o

You are now in the *Help* buffer.  Move point to the ‘ character in
the line that says

  When enabled, this replaces `foo bar' with ‘foo bar’ and replaces

(on the terminal set up as above, you should see 'foo bar' instead of
‘foo bar’, with straight ASCII single quotes), and type "C-u C-x =".
I expect to see that this is a U+2018 character displayed as ' via a
display table, but instead I see that the character is U+0027, the
ASCII quote itself.

This doesn't happen with the double quotes, U+201C and U+201D.  With
them, I do see the expected description.

Are my expectations wrong?

On a GUI terminal that is capable of displaying the curved quotes,
they display correctly as ‘..’.

If Emacs crashed, and you have the Emacs process in the gdb debugger,
please include the output from the following gdb commands:
    `bt full' and `xbacktrace'.
