If those "characters" are actually using "combined" unicode rendering, namely
using more than 1 unicode encoding point and font glyph (rough estimate), it's
over: you would need an unicode text shaper (which would use freetype as a
backend) to combine/transform "properly" the font glyphs into the 1 "char"
("extend grapheme cluster" in unicode terminology) you want.

If those "characters" are actually mapped to only 1 font glyph, well, they were
probably filtered out for some reasons (could be missing from the font files)
or it's a "limitation".
