Nope, mathpazo doesn't switch to T1 at all.

I've read through this thread and I can't figure out what fontspec is doing wrong here. Years ago there was an option to not load the LM fonts, but don't minimal TeX installations come with LM by default?

FWIW, the code that fontspec uses to select Latin Modern is

%<xetexx>\tl_set:Nn \g_fontspec_encoding_tl {EU1}
%<luatex>\tl_set:Nn \g_fontspec_encoding_tl {EU2}
\tl_set:Nn \rmdefault {lmr}
\tl_set:Nn \sfdefault {lmss}
\tl_set:Nn \ttdefault {lmtt}

Are you saying there should there be a \normalfont before loading fontenc?
