I can't remember what I had in mind at that time.

But I imagine if ` and ' have word syntax but `` and '' are
syntax-propertized to behave like matching parentheses, then function
syntax-table is not the correct way to access syntax info.

The issue is not specific to elec-pair. Any program that needs to get
the syntax of the char at point needs to check the syntax-table property
first and then check (syntax-table).

Thanks for picking up this bug.
