This is about characters U+1F327,U+1F326

The variation selector FE0F is *not* unnecessary in with these. Looking at
https://www.unicode.org/Public/emoji/5.0/emoji-data.txt <https://www.unicode.org/Public/emoji/5.0/emoji-data.txt>
those characters do *not* have the Emoji-Presentation property set, and they do have variation sequences defined.

From https://www.unicode.org/reports/tr51/#Emoji_Variation_Selector_Notes <https://www.unicode.org/reports/tr51/#Emoji_Variation_Selector_Notes>, such singleton emoji characters
“should have emoji presentation selectors on base characters with Emoji_Presentation=No whenever an emoji presentation is desired”

I would appreciate some help from someone using OSX High Sierra.

The other Emoji I have tested with Sierra's Chinese Simplified Input Method do not have the variation selector appended. Could someone please check if the same happens with High Sierra
