luaotfload changed the handling of "missing chars". 

In previous version when you used a char in your document which had
no glyph in the current font it was silently dropped. Now it shows
the .notdef glyph which can be a space or this rectangle. You can
disable this by using the font feature notdef:

\setmainfont{roboto} %show notdef
\setsansfont{roboto}[RawFeature={notdef=false}] %don't show
