>> I would assume all of the characters in these four sets, even the more detailed drawings in Webdings like the park, would be treated for encoding purposes as abstract symbols, just like the emoji. For example, the cat encoded at 0xF6 in Webdings might not necessarily be sitting up or facing right.

It depends on what distinctions the Symbols Subcommittee decides to make
when encoding these things. They could go either way. For example, the
original emoji proposal included only one camel, but during the encoding
process it was decided to disunify this into dromedary and Bactrian
