Pango¹ does not use a font for last resort glyphs, but rather
generates them on the fly. The 0..9 and A..F are taken from
your default font and the box is just a vector graphic.
This is unlike OSX, where a font is used that has glyphs like
that for each character. It is in /System/Library/Fonts and
is called LastResort.dfont. It was authored by one of the
regular contributers here (Michael?).

Properly the pan should be in greek and the go is a kanji:
U+03A0 U+U03B1 U+U03BD, meaning all and
U+8A9E, meaning language:
