What else?

!` is a ligature in tex and gives (also with pdflatex) the upside
down exclamation mark. !{}` avoids the ligature in pdflatex but (no
longer) in luatex. The \enquote obviously expands to ! + ` and then
the ligature is built. 

With legacy fonts you can actually disable the behaviour by
disabling the ligatures:


With fontspec you would have to disable tlig:


but this also disable the --.
