I can fix the lookups.

As to the use of Devanagari to write the language, this page
says that Gujarati is written in several scripts, and says it was written "historically" in Devanagari.

Many of FreeSerif’s lookups for Devanagari (deva/dev2) share the same language system list, which includes Gujarati (GUJ). This is odd, because Gujarati is not normally written in Devanagari. The problem is that "'locl' localized forms for Gujarati" is only applied for Devanagari, so the Gujarati danda glyphs (sign_purnavirama and sign_deerghvirama) are not actually used in Gujarati.

This should use the Gujarati danda glyph, but doesn’t:

data:text/html;charset=utf-8,<div style="font: 300px FreeSerif" lang=gu>%E0%AA%95%E0%A5%A4

This should not use the Gujarati danda glyph, but does:

data:text/html;charset=utf-8,<div style="font: 300px FreeSerif" lang=gu>%E0%A4%95%E0%A5%A4
