The g-5 feature is only intended for fingerings, which at least
provides a motivation to why it works the way it does.

One solution is to use g-"1" ... g-"15". If you prefer the fingering
font, you could do
\override TextScript #'font-encoding #'fetaNumber
(assuming you use version 2.4, please always tell to avoid
the risk of getting an irrelevant answer).
