For what it is worth, the Unicode database says this about the obscure character U: as you see, it does not appear in all the languages, and seems to be semantically rooted in repaying kindness. (I do not know Japanese or Chinese or ..., so you are probably perfectly right that it *means* banquets, I was just interested in where it came from ...)

The list of languages where it appears is Chinese (Cantonese & Mandarin), Korean, and Japanese (On and Kun pronunciations shown); there is no pronunciation presented from the Tang era, CheungBauer, HanyuPinlu dictionaries; nor for Vietnamese).
