You seem to assume that those fonts define that particular glyph. Both
fonts you use as an example exist in multiple versions with differing
UTF-8 support. If they don't have that glyph (which is likely, given
the results you report), then Emacs would try to get it from another
font with the same dimensions (I don't know if mintty does font
substitution and if so, how) and the results very much depend on the
font maps used.
