Those are not the correct Unicode values. There should be a “1” in front — for example, U+1F3A4 is “🎤”, the microphone emoji. Plain U+F3A4 is part of a private use area, i.e. isn’t a real character.

I’m not sure where you’re getting the emoji codes with the missing “1”. That seems to be the source of the problem.
