Ooops, looks like I might need to correct myself.

when I try to change your example a bit, like this:

l = ttk.Label(root)
l.tk.eval(l._w + ' configure -text "Test \U0001d306 String"')

there is actually some character displayed which looks similar to this
one: https://www.compart.com/en/unicode/U+1D306 , which I found rather
surprising since with Tcl I get only a placeholder. The same happens when
I replace your unicode character with the smiley \U0001f600 they used in
the page I referred to before. tk.eval appears to do some magic here.
