Christoph Lohmann, thanks for directions.
Earlier, I thought it was st-related problem, because it worked in dwm.
Now I see that st does nothing to font string, passing to Fc.

If I understood correctly, I should re-submit the same bug anew to But change marker in title to [fontconfig]?

1. st genuinely supports fallback fonts more then 3 years already.
    Maybe it has flaws and not mentioned in man, but at least works.

2. Bug arises only from combination of fallback and 'size' key.
    Not many other keys, nor without fallback. It has nothing to do
    with configured system-wide fontconfig, concrete fonts or
    whatsoever. Then why mention that trivial case?
