Topic: Char code of not-embedded font still different from original font code?

I saw that character codes for not-embedded font are still different from the original codes of the used (system) font!

Since for a character from a font not-embedded in the PDF Acrobat will SURELY need the original code from the used system font, I wonder where in the PDF is this original character code kept?

I know there are translation tables for PDFCodeToUnicode and PDFCodeToANSI, but is there a translation table for PDFCodeToOriginalSystemFontCode kept in the PDF?

This is a pressing problem for my job, so many thanks to anyone who will answer.
