When using a variable for Font Marker Symbol to label points, the variable is not interpreted in print composer's legend.

I guess it's not a quick fix, as the font marker variable is not necessarily linked to a categorized field and symbols might need to be repeated within an already categorized field. But typical use case will be "categorized value == shown field attribute".

Using labels is no option here, as labels won't show up as a symbol in legend by design.
