I don't see the maqaf with:
Windows 11 (10.0.22000.652)
Lucida Sans Unicode 5.01
and I do have both Code2000 and Arial Unicode MS installed.
I do see the maqaf if I artificially add a space (U+0020) after the second bet.
Lucida Sans Unicode version 5.01 is now 29 years old. I think it's unlikely we're going to see this issue addressed.
