Really?  I'm not sure we are talking about the same thing...

Right.  So, the above is not a bug.  cairo, pango, harfbuzz, etc all use
FT_Set_Char_Size(), which does the size matching.  All I need to is to make
the result available.

Humm.  In fact, I now noticed that I probably can use the returned x_ppem /
y_ppem to compare to my request and scale accordingly.  I think you just
solved my problem!
