By "wrongly" I mean that the font is not displayed as it should.  Compare my 
first screenshot <>, to the second

I'm fairly sure the font is the correct one, since I can see I change when, 
for example, I change specifically the `mode-line-buffer-id' face.  I'm not 
sure how to use `format-mode-line' the way you described.  If I format `mode-
line-format' there doesn't seem to be an obvious way to infer the faces that 
are used to render the various elements.  If I format some plain string it is 
returned as-is.
