Yes, the font is not Unicode; the font is merely the way to display a
character. The character is Ò (Unicode D2), but the Webdings font displays
it as an aeroplane rather than as a capital O with an accent on top.
The Webdings font is installed on my machine.
Unfortunately, this doesn't answer the question; why is Libre Office using
the wrong character for the font?
I think it is a question of what you define as "wrong". LibreOffice
uses Unicode and will correctly display Unicode characters in any font
that includes the character.
The allocation of character codes to Webdings does not seem to be
consistent and I have been unable to find an authoritative list. I have
Webdings installed (it comes with ttf-mscorefonts via Debian). In my
case the Ò character also displays as an inbox tray character using
Webdings, the Webding aeroplane character code does not seem to display
anything in other fonts.
So I think the answer to this question is that what LibreOffice displays
depends on which Webdings font you have installed on your machine. The
font is not part of LibreOffice.
I think the answer to solving the discrepancy is to stick to Unicode
fonts which should be consistent across all systems.
