It seems so.

Hmmm, when Emacs starts, it uses X font which has "misc"
foundary, and Emacs remembers that.  Later, when the
font-backend order is changed, Emacs still prefer a font of
"misc" foundary.  And, unfortunately, fontconfig returns
that same font with "unknown" foundary.

It seems that we must remember somehow which font properties
are actually specified, and which are just extracted from
the selected font.
