That example did not run for me, so I cannot check in detail,
but yes, this is possible.

The reason is that because in luatex you can adjust the metrics of
the font, it is no longer safe for the engine to auto-combine the
FontDescriptors in the PDF, so it does not, and this is what makes
the font be listed twice (or more). It should still include the
actual glyphs (FontFile) only once, but it is possible that there
is a bug there.

Best wishes,
