Probably because the fonts on your reader don't include those characters. They show up using the Desktop version of ADE, so it's definitely an issue with reader fonts, not a Sigil thing.

If the characters are not part of the Latin Extended character subset, you probably need to embed fonts in the ebook to ensure the characters render on all devices.

I have noticed that in Sigil, if I have a Courier/monotype section, I am not allowed to use curly quotes or em or en dashes, the html for which will show up as a short black vertical line (as best I can recall it). This puzzled me because I know the html works on my Kindle readers and apps. But I figured that if Sigil didn't like them, probably there was an e-reader that agreed, so I dutifully have changed to straight quotes and double hyphens, as in the old days with the Olivetti Lettera 22. (I wonder if Sigil wants to see capital O for a zero and small l for a one when I use Courier/monotype?)

Why on earth would you think anything of the sort? Sigil doesn't "want to see" anything. This has nothing to do with Sigil and everything to do with the system fonts on your computer that are used to display the monospaced characters within Sigil.

monospace (monotype is a trade name )

Every font set has its foibles (missing characters...)

If the face needs 0 to be an O, then it should just copy the Glyph to that position in the table and not count on the user to know that manual Typewriters did not have 0 keys (or 1's)
