Its not consistent with other implementations.  In linux, it shows the face.  Also in cygwin it shows the face.

Every string you put in the mode line must use a single face for all
its characters; Emacs only takes notice of the face of the first
character of each string.  This is done for efficiency reasons, as the
mode line is redrawn very frequently.

So if you want to use a different font, you should construct the mode
line "creatively", taking care not to use strings that have different
faces on some of its characters.
