Note the remark on page 6-18:
# Since the historic Cyrillic characters encoded in Unicode (U+0460
# -> U+0486) rarely occur in modern form, these letters are shown in

You should not, therefore, expect font consistency in a case such
as this. Similar comments apply to the conflict between
the upper-case Xucuri forms in the Georgian block vs. the
(implicit-lower-case) Mxedruli forms; to display proper
Xucuri bicameral text, a full Xucuri font with both upper and
lower case is required.
