    FB4B;HEBREW LETTER VAV WITH HOLAM;Lo;0;R;05D5 05B9;;;;N;;;;;

    FB4B is *canonically* equivalent to <05D5, 05B9>, so you cannot
    expect a distinction to be made when all involved characters are
    supported. Indeed, FB4B will be normalised to <05D5, 05B9>
    in all Unicode normal forms, since FB4B is composition excluded.
