Very odd
              ("\\smiley" . ?🙂)
              ("\\frownie" . ?☹️)

look very similar to me. 
I added the smiley by:

    1. deleting everything after the ? Symbol

    2. and then used Lars new emoji insert method to insert the smiley, in 
other words ("\\smiley" . ?
       use C-x 8 e e (emoji-insert)

I did exactly the same for the frownie symbol and obtained that char you 

Can somebody with access to emacs master try these steps and see whether it is 
reproducible, please? Could there be a bug in Lars function?
