Yes, this guide replace the default fonts, so if you embed a font into the LRF, it will override the default ones (that you replaced).

Would this make sense? If this is happening, is there some code I can use in the css override to have the new default dutch (actually caecilia) to be used in displaying? Or is my reasoning completely messed up here?
The LRF renderer and the EPUB renderer have nothing in common. The EPUB renderer has its own default fonts. You should not be replacing those, since embedded fonts for EPUB files are really fast and not slow as hell as for LRF. You can also link to them externally.

There's a really good thread on EPUB and font changing here.
