Vertical alignment of certain fonts not working

I’m having some issues vertically aligning my chosen font with icons - as you can see from the screenshot, the text’s bounding box doesn’t put the text in the center. I read through the Figma article from 2019 explaining their new way of interpreting baselines and the vertical centers of text, so I feel I’m doing it right, but it’s still off, as you can see. Do you guys have any idea why, or is the font chosen just not set up correctly?
