I generated a script for testing all characters:

with open('', 'w', errors='surrogatepass') as f:
    for i in range(0x100, 0x110000): print(f"echo 'label .l -text \"{chr(i)}\"; exit' | wish 2>/dev/null && echo OK '\\U{i:08x}' {chr(i)!r} || echo FAIL '\\U{i:08x}' {chr(i)!r}", file=f)

It takes a time. It tested around 20% of all characters for 6-7 hours. And it seems that all failed characters are colored emojies and all passed characters are non-colored. Seems it is related either to the font that provides colored emojies, or to the mechanism that interprets such fonts, or Tk just cannot correctly handle the output when such fonts are used (maybe reserve too small buffer or cannot interpret result code).
