comment siunitx does not detect typeface and size
@egreg: Well the OP loads fontspec which is leads to an unstandard font setup anyway. Beside this the default value of \materialfont is cmss at 7pt, so the font (without fontspec) would be the same.

@DavidCarlisle: You are right, I hadn't realized that the substituation defines the macro. But your test has the same problem: If one adds \bfseries\scshape before the test one gets yes twice.
