For CJK, the system locale setting is a factor in what happens in the GDI text stack. This is old behavior.
Also, how text is drawn can affect behaviour. For instance, if you were to select a font such as Papyrus or Mangal that doesn't support Greek or Cyrillic or Latin other than cp1252 but try drawing such text using ExtTextOut, then you'll get boxes (.notdef). Also, different text stacks such as GDI+, WPF and DirectWrite have their own fallback behaviours.

Is there anyway for users to to control which font Windows falls back to
for particular Unicode ranges?
For some blocks the fall-back font seems to be the first font installed
with coverage for that particular range - but in other cases something
else seems to determine the selection.
