Bug#907529: emacs-gtk: update to fonts-noto-cjk forces change of font family

Package: emacs-gtk
Version: 1:25.2+1-11
Severity: normal


this is a bug report towards emacs, but the origin of the problem is in
the change of fonts-noto-cjk #907048, thus I include the bug email and
debian-fonts ML in the DebbugsCC.

It seems that with the update of fonts-noto-cjk suddenly my font
configuration in emacs is overriden and Noto CJK is used automatically.

I have removed all of my .emacs/, started a new emacs session,
configured and saved the default font to
	Source Code Pro
which gives me a .emacs file as follows (comments removed):
	 '(default ((t (:family "Source Code Pro" :foundry "ADBO" :slant normal :weight normal :height 136 :width normal)))))

After configuration the font changes correctly.

Then I close Emacs (quit).

On next restart the following happens:
- Emacs windows open
- switches to Source Code Pro/14
- and an instant later switches again Noto Sans Mono CJK JP
which I can check by going into
	Customize Face: default

The change in fonts-noto-cjk is that
/etc/fonts/conf.d/70-fonts-noto-cjk.conf is added, and there the
following code is contained:
   <match target="pattern">
        <test name="lang">
        <test name="family">
        <edit name="family" mode="prepend">
            <string>Noto Sans Mono CJK JP</string>

It is surprising that this font is selected. It is true that I live in
Japan, but as you can see below I have all locales set up to en_US:
$ locale

I don't know who to blame, and even less, I don't know how to override
this, since I don't want Noto as default font.

I can only guess that one of the emacs packages installed does something
here. I have added --debug-init and got the following list of packages

My questions are:
- who is loading/overriding this font, and why/how?
- how can I define the default font for emacs that it is not overriden
  by Noto?
