I presume Pango would have fallen back to another font in that case,
as it does for the । character.

Pothana has a dotted circle as its .notdef glyph. Vamana, from the same
project, also does; pg and hb show a dottet circle when using vamana.

Perhaps pothana has a ligature? I haven't yet searched through the GSUB
table to determine that; I first have to learn the Telugu character names
so that I know what I'm looking for.
