No - none of those characters are correct in your pdf. It appears that a
ligature should be used but it is not being used.

The combination of hataf patah + ZWJ + meteg should resolve to an
un-mapped glyph ligature. This is not happening. There are a total of
three ligatures involving meteg which should exhibit this behaviour, but
they all seem to fail.
