Bug#929128: fonts-noto-cjk: not recognized by lualatex until mktexlsr

Yes, because luatexja preloads all the fonts defined in the noto-otf
mc-m = Noto~Serif~CJK~JP~Regular,
mc-bx = Noto~Serif~CJK~JP~Bold,
gt-d = Noto~Sans~CJK~JP~Regular,
gt-bx = Noto~Sans~CJK~JP~Bold,
gt-u = Noto~Sans~CJK~JP~Medium,
gt-eb = Noto~Sans~CJK~JP~Black,
mg-m = Noto~Sans~CJK~JP~Black,
mc-l = Noto~Serif~CJK~JP~Light,
__custom = false, __office = false, __noembed = false,
Thus it fails if the font is not installed.
I haven't seen the uplatex version of your document, but I guess you
load the fonts with the otf package. There the fonts are only necessary
when calling dvipdfmx, and thus only the actually needed fonts are

I think this is neither a feature nor a bug, it is just that the two
systems work differently.
You can ask the luatexja maintainers to implement on-demand loading of
fonts, but I am not sure how feasible this is.
All the best
