Is this a bug?

 And I've got a set of vfs most of which have oldstyle numerals in them.
 The one exception is the small caps founts: they have `missing glyph'
 blocks instead of oldstyle numerals.
 
 Given that all the other founts have oldstyle numerals, this seems a bit
 odd.  Can anyone explain why this is?

probably because fontinst uses straightforwardly xxxc8r where the OsF
are encoded as if they were LiF. This is a bug. Small caps of expert
founts should be done with the 8r+8x founts, using kerning from c(j)8r
