which I agree is not correct. It's not always clear how asymmetrical
cases like this should be handled. For U+9918 餘, which is analagous,
with a common simplified form U+4F59 余 and an alternate simplified
form U+9980 馀, the Unihan database lists them both as simplified
variants of U+9918:

U+9918 kSimplifiedVariant U+4F59 U+9980

On this precedent, I would expect:

U+9858 kSimplifiedVariant U+613F U+2B5B8

I suggest you report this issue on the Unicode Error Reporting form:
