This is not a Persian letter issue. It's Arabic letter U+0647 issue
for Arabic, old Turkish, Persian.. and now perhaps Kurdish and there
may be more.
What is called two eyed initial form is only used as initial form and
doesn't need a control character.
What is produced by control character is only because Unicode doesn't
allow any other option but the real intended shape, 'abbreviated
form', which BTW is wrongly presented as U+0647 in Unicode PDF, is
never joined from the left or right. And this is true for all the
languages I mentioned not only Persian.
In Arabic and Persian, it is used for abbreviation and enumeration.
In Kurdish, it might have other use. I can not comment on that.
