According to my fast check (which may be wrong) it seems that it does

wikipedia) as well. That alone would make early 40% of world's

That in itself is not a very big problem. If Cyrillic characters from DejaVu are put into a titlebar file name by fontconfig, they won't look terribly out of place.

The problem is if characters that really need to blend well do not, say if you had the word "Journée", and the "é" was pulled from DejaVu.
