-fn "Noto Color Emoji" doesnʼt change the default font for me for some
 reason, but if I change the font after startup then those sequences
 display correctly.

  (char-table-range composition-function-table #xFE0F)
=> ([".." 1 compose-gstring-for-variation-glyph])

and #xFE0F is always composable according to composite.c, so I donʼt
understand why composing only works with Noto Color Emoji. Or does the
font need specific support for it?
