I’m just a user but from , I can read :"Fontconfig performs matching by measuring the distance from a provided pattern to all of the available fonts in the system. The closest matching font is selected. This ensures that a font will always be returned, but doesn't ensure that it is anything like the requested pattern."
I don’t know if it applies for all methods, but I would say yes. And thus "no" for your question.

My idea would be, rather than no result to a request, to access the computed distance. So one could quickly evaluate if the font is close enough from what’s the desired functionality or not. By the way, the term "fallback" is not really good because returning the best font available is not the same as returning a default font.
I want to repeat I don’t know Fontconfig very well & I can be completely wrong here! But I’m still interested in the discussion because I had the same question and finally opted for a private management.
Bien à vous
