How do I override this conversion?

You can use this plugin https://wordpress.org/plugins/disable-emojis/ to disable all of wp emojis and use default ones.
or you can add code to your functions.php theme file as discussed here
Hope this helps,
Thanks, the plugin worked.
I just noticed that even Twitter replaces the Unicode Mars/Venus characters with svg files.
Glad it worked! Yes, several plaforms, wp included, replace by default emojis unicode with their own svg files, to give it a unique look on their platform.
