Most likely fonts which "coincentally" have these characters
are getting sorted before whatever greek font you have on
your system. (Assuming you have one.)

You probably can fix this by putting your greek font into 
the sans alias in fonts.conf.

For the Chinese examples, if you are running within a traditional
chinese locale (zh_TW) then it should be favoring the traditional
font. If you run within a simplified locale (zh_CN), it will
favor the simplified font. If you are running in English, it
will use the order of your sans alias in fonts.conf.

If the text you are looking doesn't match the locale, then you
need to use an explicit language tag when sending the text
to Pango, which it will then pass on to fontconfig.
