That part of the code did get changed recently.
I'll take a closer look tomorrow. Good to hear I'm not totally crazy.

But why is 'kern' always be applied? I'm not sure if I see the logic there.

Actually, XeTeX does similar weird stuff here too...

\font\1="Verdana:script=" at 12pt\1 Test  % kerning
\font\1="Verdana:script=latn" at 12pt\1 Test  % no kerning
\font\1="Verdana" at 12pt\1 Test  % no kerning

Too late at night for me to think straight.
