I don't know if this is completely relevant but the documentation for
microtype has a caveat that the package should be loaded as early as

``Load the microtype package as early as possible. The package will only see
fonts the first time they are selected. If a font has been called before
this package is loaded, it will not be set up for protrusion or expansion.
(This does not apply to the default font, though.) ''

Good Luck,
