Yes, you're right. Math accents are special and come in various sizes to fit their bases. This functionality differs from TeX in that TeX needs explicit "wide accents"; the MATH table model produces accents to fit their bases. In some cases a glyph assembly is needed.

You mean text accents, donâ€™t you? Because math accents are placed using the TopAccent info in the MATH table, which is quite different from GPOS anchors.
