my guess is that the bottom mark is not dealt with in the font (as 
arabtype also has it too low i.e. there is no mark applied) .. is this 
valid arabic input?

\usemodule[fnt-20,art-01]

\starttext

\def\sample{اللهِ\quad اللَّـهِ}

\setvariables
   [otftracker]
   [font=name:traditionalarabicnormal,
    size=24pt,
    features=arabic,
    direction=-1,
    title=Feature Check,
    sample=\sample]

\page

\setvariables
   [otftracker]
   [font=arabtype,
    size=24pt,
    features=arabic,
    direction=-1,
    title=Feature Check,
    sample=\sample]

\stoptext
