I didn't try your exact scenario yet (building the installer on 10.14 
and running it on an earlier version, right?), but I have successfully 
run jpackage on macOS 10.12. Now that we have the new EA out, it would 
be worth trying it again.

I note that by the time JDK 13 comes out, macOS 10.13 will be the oldest 
version of macOS that Apple will support. Having said that, I don't know 
of any reason why it should work as far back as 10.11 -- it just won't 
be supported.
